This page is a long term project. It takes a long time, especially to find photographs.
Any help is very welcome. Some people will be honoured with a full page while others 'must
do' with a few lines. Sorry if you feel invonveniant with this.
There are a few criteria used for selection of persons. Hard criteria are when a person is
named (f.e. C. gasseri) or made a description of a new species (f.e. C.
gasseri N. Jacobsen). A bit more complicated are criteria like authors of
articles or books, excellent growers etc.
