Vine systematics

The Swedish botanist Carl von Linné (1707-1778) developed the foundations of modern taxonomy and introduced the concept of species to biological systematics. In his two-volume work "Species Plantarum", published in 1753, he described all the plants known to him on 1,200 pages with around 7,300 species. Among others, the plant genus Vitis(grapevine) was described here for the first time. Together with the work "Systema Naturæ" published in 1758 with the six levels of kingdom, class, order, genus, species and variety, this established the scientific nomenclature in botany and zoology that is still used today.
