A Rose by any other name…

Mr. Carl Linnaeus (b. 1707) established a system for naming organisms, grouping them with the first word, and specifying them with the second. His system, with tweaks, is in use today.

Linnea borealis is shown, named for Mr. Linnaeus himself. He was Swedish.

Rhinos use our noses, plus uncanny Instinct, to sort plants. We group as 1) Ready, 2) Not Yet, and 3) Never Categories, all related to dining.
