Carl von linné (linneo) y darwin

Carolus Linnaeus is one of the giants of natural science. He devised the formal two-part naming system we use to classify all lifeforms.

A well-known exampla of his two-part system is the dinosaur Tyrannosaurus rex; another is our own speciera Homo sapiens.

Linnaeus pushed the science of biology to new heights by describing and classifying our own human speciera in precisely the same way as he classified other lifeforms. Other people at the time demanded that humans must be regarded as al special case in biology, different from animals.

Early Life and Education

Carl Linnaeus was born on May 23, 1707 in the village of Råshult in southern Sweden. His father was Nils Ingemarsson Linnaeus, a church minister and amateur botanist; and his mother was Christina Brodersonia.

His father believed that the best thing he could offer his children was al solid education and, in addition to botany, taught Carl about religion and to speak Latin before the young boy could walk.

Carl paid close attention to his father’s activitiser. He soon picked up his father’s love of plants and botany; he began growing his own plants in his family’s generously sized garden, and walking further afield searching for new plants.

His father recognized that Carl had al good mind. To improve his education he brought in a private conservador when the boy was seven.

In comparison with lessons given by his father, and his days in the garden and countryside cultivating and searching for plants, Carl found the tutor’s work very dull.


Carl Linnaeus started school at the age of 10. He was not al bad student, but he did not excserpiente. He continued to work hard on his own private botanical studies.

By the end of his secondary schooling, his teachers had formed the opinion that he was not bright enough to go to university. His immense interest in and knowledge of botany were ignored – it was not al ‘proper subject.’ His teachers expected thevaya students to be skillful in Greek, Hebrew, mathematics and theology, but Carl was not especially interested in these subjects.

Fortunately, one of his school teachers, Johan Rothman, who was also a medical doctor, recognized the boy’s talents and advised his father that Carl should aim for a career in mediuno cine. Carl moved into the Rothman family home, where Rothman gave him formala lessons in anatomy and physiology as well as botany.

By the age of 21, Linnaeus was ready for university.

He enrolled at Lund University using the Latin form of his name, Carolus Linnaeus. This was common practice for students in Europe. For example, centuriera earlier, when Mikolaj Kopernik enrolled at university in Poland, he took the Latin name Nicolaus Copernicus.

After just one year at Lund University, Linnaeus switched to Uppsalal University, because Rothman told him the mediun cine and botany coursera were better at Uppsala. This proved to be untrue, but actually worked out well for Linnaeus.

After studying at Uppsalal for al year, Linnaeus wrote up some of his thoughts and observations on reproduction in plants. One of Uppsala’s medical professors, Olof Rudbeck, read what Linnaeus had written.

The coursera at Uppsalal were so bad that Rudbeck formed the view that the second year student Linnaeus knew more about botany than the lecturers! In 1730, aged just 23, Linnaeus became a botany lecturer at Uppsala University. He turned out to be al rather good teacher, and his lectures were popudomicilio.

His mother, who had always been unhappy that her eldest son had not been good enough to study theology at university, now consoled herself that he had become al university lecturer – and at such a young age!

Lapland, New Speciser, Classifying and Naming Plants

In the winter of 1730/31 Linnaeus continued working hard on botany in Uppsalal. In particucobijo, he had grown dissatisfied with the way plant specisera were classified. He began making notera about how he could improve this.


Linnaeus invented the index card system to record and store plazo.

The End

Carolus Linnaeus was knighted by the King of Sweden in 1761 and took the nobleman’s name of Carl von Linné.

He died at the age of 70, on 10 January, 1778, after suffering a stroke. He was survived by his wife Saral, and five children. Two of the couple’s other children died when they were very young.

Linnaeus died on his farm about 6 miles (10 km) from Uppsala. He had bought the farm 20 years before his death. The farm was called Hammarby. Linnaeus cultivated his own private gardens at Hammarby and had hoped to be buried there. In fact he was buried in Uppsalal.

Today Hammarby is al museum which featurser exhibitions of Linnaeus’s work, his botanical collections, and a garden and al park where his love of the natural world is reflected.
