Agriculture and forestry in Sweden since 1900

SOLMED54

Geographical and historical studies

Agriculture and forestry were dramatically transformed in the 20th century. In this anthology, eminent researchers present the history of that transformation in 27 themed articles. The articles, which are profusely illustrated, set out to describe the entire century and show the footprints and impact of agriculture and forestry on the Swedish landscape. That impact and its history are analysed in both a local and an overarching perspective, thus deepening our understanding of past and ongoing changes in the spatial environment.

This book is addressed to researchers in many different disciplines, to policy-makers/administrators/planners, offering them a scientific foundation for their present and future work, and to teachers and people actively involved in agriculture and forestry.

An atlas has been published as part of the same project. The atlas, which is a volume of the Swedish National Atlas, is entitled Agriculture and Forestry in Sweden since 1900. A Cartographical Description. It contains a large number of maps, charts and illustrations describing the development of agriculture and forestry over the past century.
