Abstract: Of all Linnaean dissertations, none captured public attention as did this, nor has any other been the subject of more editions, reprints, translations, and commentary. The work, based on observations made in Uppsala in 1755, provided an enumeration of the flowering times of plants in each of the four seasons, and by month within each season.
