Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Prof. Karl Olov Hedberg (19 October 1923 -1 May 2007) of V ster?'s a botanist, taxonomist, author, professor of systematic botany at Uppsala University from 1970 to 1989 and an Editor of the Flora of Ethiopia; was updating the Umbelliferae manuscript (prepared by Vernon Heywood, Stephen Jury and others) when he died in 2007. Professor Hedberg was a pioneer in scientific knowledge on the afroalpine vegetation. Our present knowledge of this biosystem owes much to the research he and his wife Inga did on the Rwenzori and other high mountains in East Africa. His breakthrough views were based on their systematic fieldwork in the late 1940s.'Features of Afroalpine Plant Ecology' remains a landmark in equatorial alpine ecological research up till today, and is still available in a facsimile re-edition of 1995.)
