Erasmus Darwin (1731-1802) was an accomplished scientist and inventor. In his writings Darwin was equally ground-breaking. He translated and explained the Linnaean (sexual) system of botany and popularised it in the risque verse of The Botanic Garden. In Zoonomia he laid out a new system of disease classification and put forward a theory of biological evolution a full 70 years before his grandson, Charles. Darwin's Plan for the Conduct of Female Education was an outstanding 18th-century treatment of that theme. His book Phytologia summarized plant physiology and advocated progressive scientific agriculture, stressing the continuity between plant and animal life.
