Abstract

The aim of the article about Izabela Textorisová was to commemorate the 150th anniversary of her birth, but , at the same time, also her botanical discoveries. Thanks to these discoveries and her extraordinary talent, despite difficult conditions in which she lived, she became the first Slovak female botanist whose place in the history of botany is really unique. She found the precious botanical treasures in Blatnická and Gaderská valleys situated in the Veľká Fatra Mts. Her copious herbarium is deposited at the Department of Botany of the Faculty of Natural Sciences of the Comenius University in Bratislava. It has been used for both scientific and aducational purposes until the present time.

Key words: the first Slovak female botanist, edelweis, garland flower, Fatra sowbread, Blatnická dolina valley, Gaderská dolina valley, herbarium, thistle
