Dear Taxacomers,

This evening I have seen an empty bottle of carbonated water.
I was surprised to see large golden letters "Carl von Linne"
on its label. Does anyone know what does it mean? I know that
Linnaeus encouraged his followers to develop applyed science.
(Cf.his speech "De Necessitate Peregrinationibus intra Patriam")
Probably, this water is from a spring that was discovered by
Linnaeus? Or his name on the label is nothing but a commercial
trick? Does anyone know whether there are some other products
named in the name of C. Linnaeus?

Yours Sincerely,
