A Tribute to Carl Linnaeus

"Scientists around the world are celebrating the 300th anniversary of the birth of Swedish botanist Carl Linnaeus. He is best known for instituting a two-name method for identifying plants and animals, called binomial nomenclature. Considered the 'father' of modern taxonomy, Linnaeus named approximately 4,400 species of animals and 7,700 species of plants" - Smithsonian Institution, November 13-14, 2007
