Food, raw materials and energy: A knowledge journey in the spirit of Linnaeus

As a scientist, Carl Linnaeus had an intense interest in how we human beings make use of the world's natural biological resources. He was constantly pointing out the benefits of nature and living things. He was also fascinated by how all the species in the natural world are dependent on each other. Linnaeus arranged plants and animals in his Systema Naturae, advanced our knowledge of the living world and laid the foundation for further biological research.

This book has the same focus. But here it is Linnaeu's modern-day apostles, today's natural scientists, who describe the current state of knowledge in the green sector (agriculture and forestry) and explore ways the sector can contribute to sustainable development.
