Solution

The correct option is D Carolus Linnaeus

Binomial nomenclature was introduced by Swedish botanist Carolus Linnaeus. He is known as 'Father of Modern Taxonomy'. In the binomial system of nomenclature, an organism's name has two parts, i.e., generic name and specific epithet. E.g. Homo sapiens: scientific name of humans. Homo is the genus and sapiens is the species.
