How did he help us to keep from tangling up our plants?

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.

Rosalind Franklin was my first cousin and one my life's main regrets is that I never met this brilliant and beautiful lady.
She discovered the Single DNA Helix in 1953, then it was taken by Wilkins without her knowledge or agreeement.

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