Summary

In addition to his many accomplishments, the famous Swedish naturalist Carl Linnaeus served as praeses for numerous students when they defended academic dissertations during the period 1743¿1776. The Index to Scientific Names is a reference resource on these dissertations and the scientific names that appear in them. The Index accounts for over 30,700 occurrences of more than 13,900 different formal names of plant and animal taxa that appear in the original editions of the 186 Linnaean dissertations, and is intended to serve as a finding aid. To complement the Index, we have included a detailed list of these original dissertations, giving Lidén reference numbers, respondents' names, dissertation titles, dates of defense, pagination, and various short titles by which they have been cited.
