Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Georg Christian Edler von Oldenburg Oeder (February 3, 1728 in Ansbach - January 28, 1791 in Oldenburg (Oldenburg)) was a German-Danish botanist, medical doctor, economist and social reformer. His name is particularly associated with the initiation of the plate work Flora Danica. Oeder was the son of a Bavarian parish minister, Georg Ludwig Oeder (1694-1760). He studied medicine at the University of G ttingen under Albrecht von Haller. He then settled as a doctor of medicine in the city of Schleswig. The king called him to Copenhagen in 1751, on von Haller's recommendation. The autonomous - and conservative - University of Copenhagen, reluctant as it was to employ foreign experts, resisted Oeder's appointment in an ordinary chair. Thus, he was appointed Professor botanices regius (Royal Professor) and soon led the installation of a new botanic garden.
