He altered the naming system of biologists giving the species long Latin names into one that consisted of one Latin name to indicate the breed, and another for the species. This made up the two name species name, called a binomial, and it rapidly became the standard system for naming species. This naming system can be used all around the world, in all languages, without translating.
