Linnaeus' Philosophia Botanica

Translated by Stephen Freer

The eighteenth century Swedish botanist Carl von Linne, more commonly known as Linnaeus, was the inventor of the binary nomenclature now standard in biology. His Philosophia Botanica represents a key stage in the evolution of the scientific classification and naming of plants, and is a classic in the history of science and botany. Amazingly, no complete translation into English has been undertaken since 1775.
