références: DSB [VII, p. 584/585 : "Lamarck's recognition by the French scientific community result from the publication of his "Flore Française" (...). His innovation was the establishment of dichotomous keys to aid in the identification of French plants; by eliminating large groups of plants at each stage through the use of mutually exclusive characteristics, the given name of any plant could be rapidly determined. This 'method of analysis,' as Lamarck called it, was much easier to use in identifying plants than Linnaeus' artificial system of classification, which was based on sexual differences among plants or the natural methods of classification then developing in France with the work of Adanson, Bernard de Jussieu, and Antoine Laurent de Jussieu. Lamarck's new approach and his criticisms of Linnaeus impressed Buffon, who arranged to have the Flore published by the government."].
