Berry Go Round #5

The fifth edition of Berry Go Round has been posted at A Neotropical Savanna. The topic for this edition is a celebration of Carl Linnaeus' birthday. He came up with the system for naming species that we currently use (binomial nomenclature). Prior to his idea of a two name system (Genus specific-epithet) a species could have a name with seven descriptive words or more. It was a mess! So here's to Linnaeus and his naming system that made it tons easier to discuss and keep track of species.
