Can't find remote host with ssh connect attempt to remote server

Using Linux and remote ssh command (I've placed my public ssh key on the remote server to allow non-password prompted connects)
The following command runs fine from the Linux command line:

ssh [email protected] /usr/bin/ls

However, when the following is called from my perl script:

system("ssh [email protected] /usr/bin/ls");

Perl reports:

ssh: Could not resolve hostname root.remoteIP: Name or service not known

(remoteIP is the real IP address of the remote computer. Obviously, I need to tell Perl how to resolve the address?)
