The legacy of Linnaeus
Linnaeus at 300: We are familyUpdating the tree of life needs both the skills of evolutionary biologists and the data from genome-crunchers — the two ignore each other at their peril. John Whitfield reports.
Linnaeus at 300: The species and the speciousFor some, species are simply the things you save; but for taxonomists, the concept is much more complex. Emma Marris asks whether Linnaeus's legacy is cut out for conservation.
Linnaeus at 300: The big name huntersProfessional taxonomists often bristle at non-professionals who name new species without going through peer review. But are amateur naturalists really bad for science? Brendan Borrell reports.
Linnaeus at 300: The royal raccoon from SwedesboroAlthough Linnaeus is best known for his botany and taxonomy, he was also an anatomist — and a keeper of pets. Henry Nicholls tells the story of Sjupp the raccoon.
