This special exhibit commemorates the 300th anniversary year of renowned Swedish naturalist Carl Linnaeus (1707-1778). Among other important innovations, Linnaeus devised the naming system that is used to classify and name plants and animals. Linnaeus, unlike many scientists, became legendary in his own lifetime. The exhibit includes a number of Linnaeus’ original works plus reproductions of the plants, animals, birds, and shells that he named.
