Systema naturae

Carl Linné (or, in Latinized form, Carolus Linnaeus, 1707–1778) Swedish botanist, zoologist and physician’s principal work, the Systema Naturae (“The system of Nature”), was first published in 1735. Linné created the principles and categories of modern scientific categorisation of living beings and he was the one, who introduced the dual scientific nomenclature that has still been used today. In the very important tenth edition (1758–59) presented here, Linné first extended his nomenclature over the plant and animal kingdom as a whole.
