The Golden Age of Botany

A time of great adventure and discovery couched in the Age of Reason, a time when Botany was merely a branch of medicine and practiced almost exclusively by doctors and surgeons, and a time when the world was opening up to the concept of scientific discovery.

The defining individual of the 'GoLearn about some of the strange plants discovered
at the height of the Golden Age of Botany.lden Age of Botany' would have to be Carl Linnaeus, but there were many who worked on theories that would later influence Linnaeus in developing his system of classification.

But it was perhaps the adventure of discovery that defined the age, that wanderlust that had gripped the imagination of young men like Carl Linnaeus, Joseph Banks and Joseph Hooker.
