Carl von Linné (1707-1778), the "Father of Taxonomy", was a pupil of a school in the South of Sweden. His system of classification and naming of biological organisms, such as animals and plants, in groups, according to their similarities and differences is still in wide use, with a few modifications.
In January 2007 schools in Sweden and other countries celebrated the 300th anniversary of Linné's birthday. Students and teachers were invited to contribute to the celebrations by doing a project "The Linnéan way ... to identify and to learn about Biology".
The purpose of the Swedish project Woodland Network was not to copy Linné's work, but to try to draft a guide of selected scientific matter such as leaves, twigs, buds, fruits, vegetables, insects, minerals. The guide should be written, preferably in English. The best guides were published online.
For more information about how to follow Linné's footsteps go to:
Languages: Deutsch, English, Francais, Italiano, Svenska
