Sorbus torminalis Trunk and canopy.jpg


Most of my wiki contributions are made to Wikispecies, where I'm an admin and bureaucrat,(verify) and to the Swedish Wikipedia. Swedish is my mother tongue – even though I was born in Finland – but I feel fairly comfortable speaking and writing English and some German as well. Odd as it may seem, unfortunately I can't speak any Finnish.

My family name consists of two parts: kron – a short form of the Swedish word krona meaning 'crown', as in coronation crown or tree crown – and kvist, meaning 'bough' or 'twig'. Hence the name Kronkvist refers to a twig in the canopy of a forest. I'm the fourth generation of Kronkvist's. Before that our family name was Mattus, dating back from at least 1637. I've lived all over Sweden but nowadays reside in Uppsala, the fourth biggest city in Sweden.
