Carl Linnaeus, was a Swedish botanist, physician, and zoologist, who laid the foundations for the modern scheme of binomial nomenclature. He is known as the father of modern taxonomy, and is also considered one of the fathers of modern ecology. Many of his writings were in Latin, and his other works include Hortus Cliffortianus, Fundamenta Botanica and Bibliotheca Botanica, and Systema Naturae.
