Linné Year 2007 Launches

This year marks the 300th anniversary of the birth of a pioneer of the modern scientific age. The Swedish naturalist Carl von Linné, or Linnaeus, as he’s known abroad, was born in the province of Småland in 1707.

There are activities all year, both scientific and cultural.
