Linnean Learning

Discover and share your curiosity in nature

Welcome to Linnean Learning!

Linnean Learning was established in 2009 to enable the Linnean Society to connect with young people under 18 years old (as well as their teachers and parents), in order to inspire and engage the next generation with the natural world and biological sciences as a whole.

Maria Sibylla Merian was an artist who's work shone light onto the newly discovered process of metamorphosis. This is one of three videos which explore the overlapping worlds of art and science.
