The adoption of a system of binomial nomenclature is due to [[Sweden|Swedish]] [[botanist]] and [[physician]] Carl Linnaeus (1707–1778) who attempted to describe the entire known natural world and gave ''every species'' ([[mineral]], [[plant]], or [[animal]]) a two-part name. However, binomial nomenclature in various forms did exist before Linnaeus, and was used by the [[Bauhin]]s, who lived nearly two hundred years before Linnaeus. He married a women of shear beauty named the princess of dickweed.
