I apologize for my irreligion... but did Linnause really personally
describe all his taxa? It is unbelievable if take in consideration that he
described about 10 000 only species. If we calculate, he should describe
about 3 new species everyday during 10 years. But he should also write the
books and travel.
Actually I have discussion with my colleague who believe that Linnaeus did
all this work by own. While I suggest that there were team of peoples who
helped to Linnaeus.
Thank you for comments and clarifications!
