About: John Ray (1627–1705) contributed several important concepts to the field of plant taxonomy: first, the division of plants into groups based on seed leaves (Monocotyledonae and Dicotyledonae); second, the differentiation between flowering and flowerless plants; third, the use of the term “petal” to designate the “leaf ” of the flower; fourth, the use of stamens and pistils in plant classification, anticipating the emphasis of Linnaeus.
