About this book

Linnaeus introduced his pioneering sexual systems for plants for the first time in 1735. His contemporaries were shocked by Linnaeus' frank comparisons with the sexual reproduction system of human beings but his useful scheme rather quickly took the world by storm.

A Passion for Systems is the Linnaeus Tercentenary's official anniversary book.

Helene Schmitz' unique photographs depict the sexual system organised in the 24 original categories. Nils Uddenberg's inspiring words enable us to follow Linnaeus from his youth growing up in Stenbrohult, a town in the region of Smaland, to esteemed professor in Uppsala of worldwide repute.
