EDITORS COMMENTS
This stunning watercolor illustration, created by Georg Dionysius Ehret in 1736, is a visual representation of Carl Linnaeus' groundbreaking sexual system for the classification of plants as depicted in his seminal publication, "Systema Naturae." Linnaeus, known as the "Father of Modern Taxonomy," revolutionized the way plants were classified by introducing the binary nomenclature system, which consists of a genus and a specific epithet. The illustration showcases a selection of plants arranged in a systematic order, with each plant labeled with its corresponding Latin binomial name. Linnaeus' innovative approach to classification was based on the study of reproductive organs, or sexual characteristics, which he believed were the most stable and distinct features of each plant species. This sexual system allowed for a more accurate and consistent method of identifying and organizing plants, paving the way for modern botanical taxonomy. Ehret, a skilled botanical illustrator, expertly captured the intricate details of each plant, highlighting their unique sexual structures. The vibrant watercolor technique brings the plants to life, showcasing their diverse forms and colors. This illustration is a testament to the collaborative efforts of Linnaeus and Ehret in advancing the scientific understanding of the natural world during the 18th century. The publication of "Systema Naturae" in 1735 marked the beginning of Linnaeus' influential career in botany, which lasted until his death in 1778. This watercolor illustration, created for the 12th edition of "Systema Naturae" in 1762, is an exquisite example of the scientific advancements and artistic achievements of the time.
