Carl Linnaeus is often called the father of taxonomy. His system for naming, ranking, and classifying organisms is still in use today, 300 years after he was born in Sweden. On the eve of Linnaeus’ 300th birthday, Café Scientifique explores his life and legacy with University of Minnesota history of science professor Sally Gregory Kohlstedt and University of Minnesota entomology graduate student Greg Setliff.
