Carl von Linnè - 300 years - an other hero online
An other great and older hero is soon celebrating 300 years. Carl August von Linnè is also online. The real grand man of taxa. The Scandinavian scientist most known as a botanist but also a number one in Nordic butterflies and moths. Every times I see a Twinflower Linnea borealis my thoughts goes to Carl August. His Lapland studies and his Norwegian disciples gave us a father person and the founder of Norwegian botanical heritage. Thus also worth wile a Norwegian celebration.
