Swedish botanist and zoologist Carolus Linnaeus is born. Linnaeus will establish the fundamentals of modern biological taxonomy and will eventually be seen as a father of modern ecology.

The binomial nomenclature used in biology is created by Carl Linnaeus, though many of the groupings he devises will be changed over time as biologists learn more about which flora and fauna are closely related and which aren't.
