He then returned to Sweden, where he became professor of medicine and botany at Uppsala.

In the 1740s, he was sent on several journeys through Sweden to find and classify plants and animals.

These books, mainly about medicine, were part of the collections that were sold by Linnaeus's widow to The Linnean Society of London, but they were later returned to Sweden at the end of the 19th century on the grounds that they did not fit in subject-wise.

The Linnaean Correspondence Project publishes the complete text of the letters sent and received by Carl Linnaeus, together with summaries in English.

Facsimiles of the original manuscripts and of selected printed editions are provided.

The texts, summaries and facsimiles are linked to a master database of the correspondence and to files providing biographical and bibliographical information on the correspondents and their works.

In the 1750s and 1760s, he continued to collect and classify animals, plants, and minerals, and published several volumes.
