  Systema Naturae - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The book Systema naturae per regna tria naturae, secundum classes, ordines, genera, species, cum characteribus differentiis, synonymis, locis ("system of nature, in three kingdoms of nature, with classes, orders, types and species, with differences of character, synonyms, places"), is by the Swedish systematist Carolus Linnaeus.
Today however we are aware that identifying all the species that exist is probably beyond the capabilities of humanity.
The number of species has become too large to be assembled in one book and besides which databases offer better storage capabilities.

 Carl Linnaeus
Linnaeus continued to revise his Systema Naturae, which grew from a slim pamphlet to a multivolume work, as his concepts were modified and as more and more plant and animal specimens were sent to him from every corner of the globe.
As he wrote in the preface to a late edition of Systema Naturae: Creationis telluris est gloria Dei ex opere Naturae per Hominem solum -- The Earth's creation is the glory of God, as seen from the works of Nature by Man alone.
Although Linnaeus was not the first to use binomials, he was the first to use them consistently, and for this reason, Latin names that naturalists used before Linnaeus are not usually considered valid under the rules of nomenclature.

Selecting the tenth edition of Systema Naturae as the starting point of scientific zoological nomenclature does not mean, however, that all previous work in systematic zoology was single-handed cancelled from the record.
In this respect, however, Systema Naturae represented a kind of bottleneck, where names originally expressed in a diversity of classic and modern languages underwent a common process of normalization to become members of a scientific nomenclature expressed in a Latin, or Latinized, form.

With his Systema naturae, Linnaeus is considered perhaps the most important forerunner of Darwin and his theory of the origin of species.
He is primarily famous for his Systema naturae, a classification system for plants, animals and minerals.
His stringent standards of empirical evidence for all conclusions were also important in the general development of natural science research methods.

 Sanne Bjerg writer / Systema Naturae
“Systema Naturae” is the story of the swedish naturalist Carl von Linné (1707-78), who spend most of his life trying to recreate the lost paradise of his childhood garden as a herbarium, a botanical garden, and in endless studies of the system of nature.
Maybe the major reason Linné never succeeded in regaining his childhood paradise, was that he became a slave of classification.
In “Systema Naturae” we join Carl von Linné in the last hours of his life where he is trying to make sense of the entire scope of his life by sorting out and naming the major events of it.

Linnaeus is credited with the first, wide-spread use of the system of bionomial nomenclature, which dates from the 10th edition in 1758 of his Systema Naturae.
He used the name of Carolus Linnaeus in the Systema Naturae and other publications.
He became a knight and a noble in 1762 when King Adolf Frederik entitled him Carl von Linné., receiving the German noble mark "von" since there was no mark of nobility in the Swedish language.

 Biological Nomenclature
Aristotle, the Greek philosopher who lived from 384 to 322 BCE, is often called the "father of biological classification." He recognized that organisms ranged from the relatively simple to much more complex.
He believed that all living organisms could be arranged on a scale of increasing complexity, which is referred to as the scala naturae or "scale of nature." Aristotle believed that each form along this ladder of life had an alloted rung, and that species did not change with time.
He used criteria such as: two-footed versus four-footed, hairy versus feathers, with or without an outer shell, etc. However, Aristotle did delineate the major groups of animals, like the mammals, fish, birds, whales, and insects.

His systema naturae was a continuous work that ended up in multiple volumes as the concepts of classification were modified with the growing number of species of plants and animals.
Because of his religions beliefs, he believed that it was possible to find an understanding of God by looking at His creations.
In part of Systema Naturae, he explained how he thought that the divine order of the creations of God would possible be revealed by studying nature and its origins.

 The Reception of Linnæus's Works in Germany with Particular Reference to his Conflict with Siegesbeck
By introducing the binomial nomenclature in Systema naturae (1735), finally adopted in Species plantarum (1753), he created order in a period when there was great confusion in naming animals and plants.
[3] In Systema naturae Linnæus also gives a full account of his sexual system for the classification of plants, which was founded on the organs of reproduction, i.e., the stamens and pistils.
[19] Linnæus says himself in Systema naturae that he saw the eternal, omniscient and almighty God "on his back" and he was amazed.

 Linnaeus, Carolus. The Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition. 2001-05
In Systema naturae (1735) he presented his classification of plants, animals, and minerals, and in Genera plantarum (1737) he explained his system for classifying plants largely on the basis of the number of stamens and pistils in the flower.
Despite the artificiality of some of his premises, the Linnaean system has remained the basis of modern taxonomy.
Species plantarum (2 vol., 1753) described plants in terms of genera and species, and the 10th edition (1758) of Systema naturae applied this system to animals as well, classifying 4,400 species of animals and 7,700 species of plants.

 Linnaeus | Carl | 1707-1778 | Swedish taxonomist
These botanists received his key taxonomical works rapturously, the Systema naturae (1735) and the Fundamenta botanica (1736).
He toiled to expand the latter for the rest of his career, even as he penned other monographs and continued to update his Systema naturae.
All the while, he served as court physician, inventoried economically useful plant life for Parliament, and critiqued noblemen's gardens, who finally ennobled the parson's son to Carl 'von Linné' for his doughty service.

In it, he identified every species he knew of according to a standard nomenclature, a genus name followed by a species name.

Joachim Johann Nepomuk Anton Spalowsky (1752-17 May 1797) was a veritable polymath in the Austrian Empire of the late eighteenth century.
In addition to the Prodromus in Systema Historicum Testaceorum (1795) he authored works on such diverse topics as birds, mammals and even a disquisition on economics and numismatics, a further sign of his scholarly breadth.
