Fauna et Flora Fennica

Fauna et Flora Fennica (FaFFe) project

The project studies the fauna and flora of the Finnish region through historical, cultural and linguistic research. It brings to light sightings of different species from the 19th century to the 1970s, hidden in newspapers and magazines, which have not been previously known in a natural scientific and public context. The aim of the project is to renew the understanding of Finnish biodiversity and to provide researchers, organisations and the general public with more comprehensive information on the occurrence of species in Finland. The project is funded by the Alfred Kordelin Foundation and has received funding from the Foundation’s Major Cultural Projects funding programme.
