The Sweet Bay was among the first species to be named in the genus Magnolia, when in the great botanist Linnaeus commemorated Pierre Magnol ( - ), French professor of botany at Montpelier. Magnolias are planted primarily because of their glorious flowers; a few species are valued quite as much for their foliage; one (M. acuminata) serves as a large shade tree. Many scientific bird names describe a bird's habits, habitat,distribution or a plumage feature, while others are named after theirdiscoverers or in honour of prominent ornithologists. Thisextraordinary work of reference lists the generic and specific name foralmost every species of bird in the world and gives its meaning andderivation. In the case of eponyms brief biographical details 1/5(1). Linnaeus’s principles of botanical nomenclature were first expounded in Fundamenta Botanica of and these were later elaborated, with numerous examples, in his Critica Botanica of The book was published in Germany when Linnaeus was twenty-nine and the title page carries a discursus by Johannes Browall. The friendship was not to last. If, like me, you regularly wonder whose name is commemorated behind the botanical Latin then this book is one that you certainly need. Linnaeus himself was a doctor but the book only covers plants that grow in the RCP's garden so Linnaea borealis does not feature. The author stretches the title somewhat. For example, Adonis was a mythical.

Erasmus Darwin is commemorated on one of the Moonstones, Darwin then wrote The Loves of the Plants, a long poem, which was a popular rendering of Linnaeus' works.

At the end of his life he wrote Medicinalium observatorionum exempla rara, a work on special and rare diseases that he had seen in his medical career. This was published in by Christoffel Plantijn in Leiden. Engraved book-plate inside front board (Bibliotheque du comte Le Moyne de Martigny). Very scarce edition of Theophrastus' two main works.

Kalm was a great friend of Bartram, as we judge from Kalm's journal, and as a letter from him to John Bartram in Darlington's "Memorials" indicates; and doubtless the good old Quaker botanist was well satisfied that Dr. Linnaeus in his peculiar goodness had thus commemorated his .

Unfortunately the vicarage was destroyed by fire in , and only the foundations survive. However, Linnaeus’ close association with the area is commemorated by a very lovely statue of him as a young man. Stenbrohult is an “out of the way” place, but well worth a visit by those interested in the history of botany. UPPSALA.

In appreciation of Burman’s work, Linnaeus later commemorated him with a genus Burmannia. Hermann’s collection remained unknown.

Linnaeus “apostles”: A 8-volume book entitled “The Linnaeus Apostles - Global Science & Adventur e” has recorded students of Linnaeus. However, he recognised 17 of them as ‘apostles’.

Shchiebinger () posits that "interestingly, Dahlberg was appalled when Linnaeus commemorated Quassi in the plant`s name, he has hoped for this honor himself.". The first was Linnaeus’ method of placing organisms into hierarchical groups based on shared similarities, from kingdom down through class, order, genus, species (other groups were added later).

Pioneers of taxonomy Linnaeus and Lamarck were commemorated in many taxonomic names, e.g., the snake Calamaria linnaei and polychaete worm Pomatoceros lamarckii (BoieQuatrefages ). Nevertheless, judging from the zoological nomenclature Charles Darwin has been probably the most inspiring and influential scientist.

Sex, Botany and Empire: The Story of Carl Linnaeus and Joseph Banks Patricia Fara When the imperial explorer James Cook returned from his first voyage to Australia, scandal writers mercilessly satirised the amorous exploits of his botanist, Joseph Banks. A similar charge against Linnaean names goes under the rubric of ‘linguistic imperialism’, which asserts that Linnaeus erased not only indigenous names but also indigenous knowledge about plants' uses and habitat, thereby promoting European white male hegemony.
