Carl Linnaeus (1707- 1778)
Carl Linnaeus was a Swedish naturalist. He created two scientific systems: the system for classifying plants and animals and the system for naming all living things. Linnaeus is also called the Father of Systematic Botany. Botany is the study of plants.

Anna Atkins (16 March 1799 — 9 June 1871 ) was an English botanist and photographer. She is often considered the first person to publish a book illustrated with photographic images. Some sources claim that she was the first woman to create a photograph.

Charles Darwin (1809-1882) was an English scientist who studied nature. He showed how animals can change over generations to form new species, a process called evolution.

John Muir (1838-1914) was a Scottish-born American naturalist, author who became known as "Father of the National Parks." Millions have read his letters, essays, and books of his adventures in nature, and his advocacy was essential in helping to preserve many beautiful parts of the West--especially Yosemite National Park.

Andy Goldsworthy is an artist who views his artistic process as a 'collaboration with nature' in which he is uncovering the essence of his materials and determining what they are capable of. Some of Goldsworthy's sculptures are very complex. For example 'Knotsweed Stalks' (1988) is an intricate arrangement of stalks woven together and reflected in the water of a lake. Others are as simple as a line of stones placed on the sand (Stones sinking in the sand, 1976).

Nicholas Grimshaw is an English architect who designed the biomes at the Eden Project.
