Sprinkled throughout Carl’s diary are anecdotes related to his life-long fascination with plants. He learned a good deal directly from his father who collected different plants for his chemist shop where they would be used to make medicinal drugs. This chapter briefly summarizes Størmer’s love for and contributions to the field of botany (Fig. 5.1).
