Bertil Hylmö

Bertil Hylmö (1915–2001) earned a doctorate in botany, genetics, and microbiology at the University of Lund, Sweden, and over 40 years developed an exceptional living and herbarium collection of Cotoneaster at his home in Bjuv, Sweden. He created a classification system for the genus and, with Karl Evert Flinck, established a project for DNA research into the more difficult species. In 2003, the University of Alnarp in Sweden dedicated a Cotoneaster arboretum to Hylmö's memory and to continue his work with this genus.
