BOTANY IN THE WARSAW-BASED JOURNALS 'PAMIETNIK FIZJOGRAFICZNY' AND 'WSZECHSWIAT'
Languages of publication
The paper discusses two naturalist journals published in Warsaw from the beginning of 1880s (i.e. during the times of the Russian occupation in the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century), when no Polish university-level schools were allowed. The two journals were initiated by the same group of naturalists, mainly with ties to the Polish university in Warsaw (Szkola Glówna), which was active between 1862 and 1869. 'Pamietnik Fizjograficzny' (The Physiographic Diary) was published in the years 1881-1921, at first on an annual basis, and later less regularly. Among its editors were botanists, e.g. Tytus Chalubinski, a well-known Warsaw physician, and Jerzy Alexandrowicz. The journal published original studies in botany, zoology, geology, meteorology and anthropology. 'Wszechswiat' (The Universe) was a weekly published in the years 1882-1914. It contained many review articles by all of the eminent Polish botanists of those times, as well as original floristic reports. Both journals played an important role in promoting knowledge of botany in this part of Poland.
