What does "system of nature" mean exactly?

"It may have been in Oxford that [Adam] Smith first drafted the text we know under the title ‘History of Astronomy’, a text Smith considered important enough to spare it from the flames in 1790. The ‘History’ considers ‘all the different systems of nature’ that have been adopted in the ‘western parts of the world’."
