A catalogue of Linnaeus works

This can be downloaded from Linnaeus Link, a website hosted by the Natural History Museum, UK.

"The project has produced digital versions (PDF format) of: A catalogue of the works of Linnaeus ... preserved in the libraries of the British Museum (Bloomsbury) and the British Museum (Natural History) (South Kensington) [now the British Library and The Natural History Museum], second edition, 1933 by Basil H Soulsby, and An index to the authors (other than Linnaeus) mentioned in the Catalogue of the works of Linnaeus preserved in the libraries of the British Museum, second edition, 1933 (1936) by C Davies Sherborn.

Linnaeus Link is a collaboration between The Natural History Museum, the British Library, Danmarks Natur- og Laegevidenskabelige Bibliotek, the Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation, Kungl. Vetenskapsakademien, the Linnean Society of London, Stockholms universitetsbibliotek and Uppsala universitetsbibliotek.

Celebrations in Gustavus Adolphus College, Minnesota, USA.

'Gustavus Adolphus College held its second Linnaeus Symposium on 25 Apr 2007. Symposium attendees engaged with well known ethnobotanists and Linnaean scholars and events included arboretum tours, formal public presentations, a garden dance, and a Swedish buffet. This year's symposium was called "Linnaeus @ 300" to correspond with the 300th anniversary of the birth of Carl Linnaeus, the Swedish botanist for whom the arboretum is named.'

The Linnaeus Arboretum was designed to represent the shape and ecosystem layout of the state of Minnesota. They have a blog!

Gustavus Adolphus College is the oldest Lutheran college in Minnesota, and was founded in 1862 by Swedish immigrants and named for Swedish King Gustav II Adolf. It has hosted the internationally recognised annual Nobel Conference since 1963.

About the sculpture - "Created by the late Paul T. Granlund, who was the Sculptor-in-Residence at Gustavus Adolphus College. The torso blends into the shape of a linden tree, and the wig includes impressions of the Linnaeus's beloved garden, the Linnaeus Botanical Gardens in Uppsala, Sweden."
