Founded in 1788, the Society takes its name from the Swedish naturalist Carl Linnaeus. The Society maintains the majority of Carl Linnaeus' plant and animal research collections, as well as his personal library, all stored under optimum conservation conditions. These unique collections are of continuing fundamental importance as a primary reference for taxonomy. The collections are enhanced by the Society's own rich library which provides key resources for research. The library is open to Fellows and the general public alike and is a major source of publications on taxonomy, evolutionary biology, the history of the biological sciences as well as the life and work of Linnaeus.

The Appleyard Fund was established in 1968 from the estate of Percy Appleyard FLS. Currently up to £2,000 is available from which grants are made towards the expenses of research projects in the field of botany or zoology.
