From phyllotaxis to dendrochronology, Leonardo's writings and drawings record insights of absolute importance in the history of botany, generated by his keen spirit of observation and his continuous experimental activity, which delineate a dynamic vision of science, inseparable from art and from the technique and rich in implications and references even in the contemporary world.
