Beatrice Häsler’s artwork on the Botanical Collection of UZH: After a short description of the collection’s origin, a selection of the ‘impressions’ is presented.
In the booklet’s Appendix, the early UZH history is interwoven with the discovery of caffeine as well as with the ‘Swiss Ice-Age Theory’. The scientific case for ancient glaciation was first elaborated in detail by Jean de Charpentier at the ‘Académie sans fauteuils et sans palmes’ (link on p28), now a B&B hotel of excellence near Bex!
