He gave us the means of grouping plants into families etc, rather than every plant being one on its own, and a unified, binomial naming system, so that everyone knows what plant they are talking about!

Carl Linnaeus is thought be the father of Taxononmy, who was interested in the naming of plants, he was also a Swedish Botanist, Physician and Zoologist.
But his parents wanted him to be a priest or aptitude.

Just what does an "aptitude" do? It is a new one for me.
