Carl Linnaeus, Swedish botanist and physician, is known for devising

be on the man as a gardener, a traveller and a teacher who inspired
his students to travel the world. At the botanic garden in Uppsala

and a small ‘museum in the air’ was built for his books and
collections of the natural world.
