(1627-170English naturalist who devised a classification system accounting for some 18,0plant species. It was the first system to divide flowering plants into monocotyledons and dicotyledons, with additional divisions made on the basis of leaf and flower characters and fruit types.
In Methodus plantarum nova 168Ray first set out his system. He also established the species as the fundamental unit of classification.
Ray believed that fossils are the petrified remains of dead animals and plants. This concept, which appeared in his theological writings, did not gain general acceptance until the late 18th century.
Ray was born near Braintree, Essex, and studied at Cambridge, where he became a lecturer and, in 166was ordained a priest. In 16he lost his livelihood because of the Act of Uniformity, which required from all clerics a declaration that he refused to sign. With naturalist Francis Willughby (1635–1672), Ray toured Europe 1663–6and on their return to England, Ray lived at Willughby's home, where they collaborated on publishing the results of their studies. After Willughby's death, Ray remained in the Willughby household until 167and then returned to the village where he was born.
In 16Ray, with Willughby’s help, published Catalogus plantarum Angliae/Catalog of English Plants. Ray and Willughby then began working on a definitive catalog and classification of all known plants and animals. Historia generalis plantarum 1686–17covered about 18,6species (most of which were European) and contained much information on the morphology, distribution, habitats, and pharmacological uses of individual species as well as general aspects of plant life, such as diseases and seed germination.
Ray also wrote several books on zoology, giving details of individual species in addition to classification: Synopsis methodica animalium quadrupedum et serpentini generis/Synopsis of Quadrupeds 169Historia insectorum/History of Insects 171and Synopsis methodica avium et piscium/Synopsis of Birds and Fish 1713.
