Carl Linnaeus (1707-1778), today a largely unknown figure, is one of the giants of natural science. He devised the formal Latin binomial (two-part) naming system we use to classify all life forms. This BBC podcast is a panel discussion with moderator Quentin Cooper, botanist Dr. Sandra Knapp (Natural History Museum, London), life sciences expert Professor Staffan Müller-Wille (Exeter University, UK), and science writer and biographer of Linnaeus, Dr. Lisbet Rausing.
