"Medicus was the most prolific, bitter, witty, and sarcastic of those contemporary opponents of Linnaeus who ignored or assailed his innovations. Apart from invective and references to Linnaeus' shortcomings, errors, and inconsistencies, Medicus' numerous works contain many firsthand botanical observations, particularly of Leguminosae, Cruciferae, Malvaceae, and Rosaceae, and are both of historical and nomenclatural importance" (DSB IX, p. 253).
