Carl Linnaeus (1707-1778) coloured engraving. Here the Swedish botanist and taxonomist is wearing traditional Lapp clothes. Linnaeus made an expedition into Lapland, northern Scandinavia, in 1732 on behalf of Uppsala University, Sweden, where he had been teaching. He travelled over 7300 kilometres, discovering a hundred new species of plants and making observations on the animal life as well.

His work became the foundation of modern taxonomy. Read More
