Carl Linnaeus. The Swedish botanist Carl Linnaeus, 1707-1778. Linnaeus was a great classifier of living organisms. In 1735 he published "Systema Naturae", The Natural World, in which he divided flowering plants into classes depending on their stamens and then the classes into orders according to the number of pistils. He is considered the founder of modern taxonomy. In 1749 he introduced the so called binomial nomenclature by which each plant was given a latin generic noun followed by a specific adjective. Linnaeus opposed the evolutionary theory believing that no new species had been formed since the Creation and none had become extinct.
