The National Linnaeus Secretariat

The National Linnaeus Secretariat at the Swedish Royal Academy of Sciences coordinated the celebrations, events, information and marketing for the tercentenary in 2007.  Their (archived) website includes a timeline of events in Linnaeus’s life, a biography of his journeys and discoveries and details of Project Linnaeus, which is hoping to publish all known letters written by or sent to Carl Linnaeus.  There is useful information about exhibitions on Linnaeus, celebrations held in 2007 of his work, an expedition and film being produced and a schools programme.
