Carl Linnaeus

Carl Linnaeus, whose work on classification made him the "father of modern biology", was born 300 years ago today. I enjoyed listening to a discussion of Linnaeus and his work on Radio 4's Material World programme this afternoon. If you are interested you can find it here and listen online.

Oh, thanks for that link! I have been fascinated by Linnaeus since childhood when I read a book about him called "Beloved Botanist." I still ahve the book and look forward to reading it with dc. What a fascinating man.
