Ah but that's the beauty of the book, it challenges Linnaeus as the true father of nomenclature and Taxonomy.

But the hierarchial naming structure he developed (genus, species) has been adopted across many things. We even refer to cars that way - Hyundai Copen, not Copen out of Hyundai.
It's like saying just cos Newton was only the guy that bothered to record and investigate gravity he should be ignored as it was there already.
Thats where the genius comes in - they didn't necessarily "invent" anything but identified and applied rules to that that already existed and had just been taken for granted?

But the system was already in place for over a hundred years before he came along, all he did was market it better than everyone else (he was a brilliant self publicist) and force his will behind it.
