Symbolae Botanicae Upsalienses

A publication from Acta Universitatis Upsalienses

Symbolae is a journal produced on behalf of the Systematic Biology department at Uppsala University.

The journal publishes contributions in botany, with an emphasis on monographs, floras, symposium volumes and thematic collections. Papers are considered for publication if they make an original contribution to any branch of systematic botany in the broadest sense, including mycology, phycology, plant geography, botanical history, etc.

Printed copies of all published issues are available from Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis.



Published Issues

Here is a complete list of all issues published. Up to and including volume 36, each volume consists of one or (usually) more numbered parts. From volume 37 onwards, each volume is a separate monograph, without numbered parts.
