Caption: Carl Linnaeus (1707-1778), Swedish botanist and taxonomist (right), meeting French botanist Bernard de Jussieu (centre) in the Jardin des Plantes, Paris, France. Linnaeus devised a classification system for plants based on the structure of their sexual organs and published it in Systema Naturae (The Natural World, 1735). His work became the foundation of modern taxonomy. De Jussieu, who worked at the gardens, was a member of a famous family of botanists. Linnaeus stayed with the de Jussieu brothers on his visit to Paris. He also corresponded with Bernard for some thirty years.
