The Linnæan System of Botany

Classes and Orders

This system of Botanical arrangement which, although founded upon a distinction in nature, so far as it regards the Stamina and Pistil, does not otherwise imply any natural affinity ; consequently arranging plants together by these characters, is to be regarded in the economy of nature, as purely artificial.

The Classes of Linnaeus are twenty-four, twenty-three of which have their distinctions founded on the number and situation or arrangement of the Stamina ; and the twenty-fourth is made to include all those plants which, from the obscurity or uncertainty of their fructification did not allow of being included in either of the preceding Classes.
