In the 300s B.C. lived the great Greek thinker named Aristotle. Most people would call him a philosopher, and he definitely was, but he was a man of many interests and talents. He didn't just think about things in the abstract, he carefully and thoughtfully observed the world around him. What he saw was a hierarchy of organisms, which he called the "Ladder of Nature". Different organisms showed different levels of complexity and abilities to thrive.

Carolus Linnaeus

Carolus Linnaeus was a Swedish botanist, naturalist, physician and zoologist(the study of animals and animal behavior). He was the first person to lay down the principles to determine the natural genera and species of organisms, and to form a uniform system for naming them. Linnaeus is considered to be the founding father of modern taxonomy as well as ecology.
