Hi,

This is a follow-up to an earlier topic, Carl von Linné Botanical studies. This year is the 300 year anniversary for the great swedish botanist Carl von Linné. I´ll post some new texts about Carl and some more flowers replacing the ones in the first thread.


Quote from Harvard University

"Linnaeus simplified naming immensely by designating one Latin name to indicate the genus, and one as a "shorthand" name for the species. The two names make up the binominal ("two names") species name.

For instance, in his two-volume work Species Plantarum (The Species of Plants), Linnaeus renamed the briar rose Rosa canina. This binominal system rapidly became the standard system for naming species.

Zoological and most botanical taxonomic priority begin with Linnaeus: the oldest plant names accepted as valid today are those published in Species Plantarum, in 1753, while the oldest animal names are those in the tenth edition of Systema Naturae 1758, the first edition to use the binominal system consistently throughout"

End quote



Carl von Linné wrote in 1729 how

. . . The flowers' leaves. . . serve as bridal beds which the Creator has so gloriously arranged, adorned with such noble bed curtains, and perfumed with so many soft scents that the bridegroom with his bride might there celebrate their nuptials with so much the greater solemnity. . .
