Carl Linnaeus
b. 5-13-1707; Sweden
d. 1-10-1778; Uppsala

Carl Linnaeus, also known as Carolus Linnaeus (Latinized) and Carl von Linné (after ennoblement), was a botanist, physician and zoologist. He is recognized as the “Father of Modern Taxonomy” and one of the fathers of modern ecology. Linnaeus’contribution to science is the binary nomenclature, a formal system of naming species with a Latin name in two parts: first genus, then a specific description, ie. Cornus florida for the flowering dogwood.

Carl Linnaeus quotes-
• “A practical botanist will distinguish at the first glance the plant of the different quarters of the globe and yet will be at a loss to tell by what marks he detects them.”

Jane Loudon, née Webb
b. 8-19-1807; Birmingham, England
d. 7-13-1858

Jane Loudon is best known for illustrations and co-authoring gardening manuals with her husband John, also a botanist and garden designer. She was also an early pioneer in science fiction, her novel Mummy! was written to support herself, when at age 17, her father died penniless.

BTW - Bindweed (wild morning glory, creeping jenny, etc.) a native of Eurasia, was introduced to the west as an ornamental; now it is considered a nuisance and pernicious weed that is nearly impossible to eliminate.
