Carl Linnaeus, also known after his ennoblement as Carl von Linné, was a Swedish botanist, physician, and zoologist, who laid the foundations for the modern biological naming scheme of binomial nomenclature. He is known as the creator of modern taxonomy, and is also considered one of the creators of modern ecology.

(Linneaus, 1758) refers to the 10th Edition of his Systema Nature from 1758 in which he introduced the bionomial nomenclature for animals. A Digital Copy is found Online @ MDZ (Münchener Digitalisierungszentrum)
