Swedish scientist Carl Linnaeus created the method we use to name plants and animals with a genus and species. Although he lived one hundred years before Darwin and worked only in Latin, his book, Systema Naturae, is still at the basis of modern taxonomy. His name, "Linnaeus," is derived from the linden tree. Historical and original photo illustrations include a sample of Carl Linnaeus' writing. This book is of interest to budding biologists and to journalists and other writers interested in how to format scientific names in print.
