Linnaean Tercentenary 2007


The 300th anniversary of the birth of Carl von Linné (Carolus Linnaeus) will be commemorated internationally in 2007. The Linnean Society of London is planning many activities to celebrate Linnaeus' legacy.

More information is to be followed. First a picture of a statue of Carl situated at The Botanical Garden in the City of Gothenburg, Sweden. Then some plant pictures and further information

This is the flower named after Carl von Linné. It is called Linnea borealis. This is a photo of a hand drawn school poster for educational use.

Unfortunately I haven´t seen a Linnea borealis myself
