The logo of the tercentenary is based on a picture that was painted by the leading botanical artist of his day, Georg Dilnys Ehret. The painting illustrates Class 10 of the sexual system.

Carl Linnaeus
Carl Linnaeus is by far the most internationally well-known Swede that has ever lived. Not only was he a scientist, botanist, zoologist and geologist, he was also a skilled doctor, health worker and philosopher. The Linnaean era is characterised by an ambition to catalogue, organise and give names to the whole natural world. Linnaeus attracted many disciples, and he has left a lasting impression in many locations. Find out more about the man whose anniversary we are celebrating.
