Karl, Get Out of the Garden!

Karl, Get Out of the Garden!

Carolus (Karl) Linnaeus started off as a curious child who loved exploring the garden and grew up to build the Linnaean system, the basis for the classification used by biologists around the world today. Despite his intelligence--and his mother's scoldings--he was a poor student, preferring to be outdoors with his beloved plants and bugs. Karl's love of nature as a child led him to take on a seemingly impossible task in adulthood: to give a scientific name to every living thing on earth.
