Caption: Augustin de Candolle. Coloured portrait of the Swiss botanist Augustin-Pyramus de Candolle (1778-1841). Candolle is most famous for his Elementary Theory of Botany, which he published in 1813. In this he extended and developed taxonomical schemes from Cuvier and Linnaeus, describing a system which was used for the next 50 years. His taxonomy was based on morphology rather than physiology. Candolle also studied plant geography and the influence of soil types.
