Caption: Bernard de Jussieu (1699-1777), French botanist, examining a flower with a magnifying glass. As a demonstrator at the Jardin des Plantes, Paris, Jussieu designed a botanical garden in which groups of related plants were planted together. This design reflected a system which became the basis of modern classification. Jussieu compared the flowering structures of ferns and those of higher plants. He also began a process of putting genera into families. Jussieu was the first to suggest that polyps were animals.
