Johan Rutger Sernander (2 November 1866 – 27 October 1944) was a Swedish botanist, geologist and archaeologist. He was one of the founders of the study of palynology which would later be developed by Lennart von Post, as well as a pioneer in the early Swedish natural conservation and ecology movements. He was among other societies a member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences,[1] the Royal Swedish Academy of Letters, History and Antiquities and Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters.[2] Sernander was one of the founders of the Swedish Society for Nature Conservation in 1909, as well as its chairman during a number of the first years.[3]
