Ellis, an English government official in Florida and the Caribbean, collected samples of botanical specimens and coral and sent them to scientists in England and Europe. In his correspondence with Linnaeus he dismissed earlier theories that coral were plants and proposed that they were animals. His book contributed to the development of scientific inquiry and the identification and classification of living things.
