Description "Linnaeus Turns 300—Happy Birthday!" by Roland Thorstensson, Scandinavian Studies and Cindy Johnson-Groh, Arboretum/Biology. The year 2007 marks the 300th anniversary of the birth of Carl Linnaeus, Swedish taxonomist and ethnobotanist. He invented a naming system for plants and animals and is considered "the Prince of Botany." He was also a medical doctor, mineralogist, ethnographer, economist, adventurer and a most prolific writer. The Gustavus Arboretum is named in his honor. He was a dedicated teacher whose students went to every continent to further their Master's field of natural history, bring back exotic plants and animals for him to name. Roland Thorstensson and Cindy Johnson-Groh will help you get better acquainted with Linnaeus. This presentation will be a preview of the upcoming Linnaeus Symposium.
