Linnaeus (Linné), Carl von (1707-1778)

Linnaeus' Species Plantarum (1753) is the starting point for the system of priority used the nomenclature of vascular plants. This is not the place in which to attempt to catalog this man's achievements. See, rather, a biography such as W. Blunt's The compleat naturalist. A life of Linnaeus. London, 1971, or the introductory essays by W. T. Stearn in the Ray Society reprint of the Species Plantarum.
