The Herbarium of Carl Linnaeus and The Linnean Society of London

Mark Spencer

Carl Linnaeus was a Swedish botanist, physician and botanist who formalised the binomial system, a system of naming organisms. Thus, we humans are known as ‘Homo sapiens’, the common lawn daisy as ‘Bella perennis’. This system has enabled communication across centuries and between societies. He was the first man in Europe to flower and fruit a banana and he developed a technique for growing seed pearls.
