Carl Linnaeus made it his life's work to develop and refine a way to classify and name all life on Earth.
He was one of the most influential scientists of his time. His theory of classification allowed for clear and easy descriptions of plants, animals and minerals. So straightforward was his new naming system, it is still used by scientists today.
Meet our Carl Linnaeus gallery character and see some of his favourite specimens on the first floor above the Central Hall.
