Description
Beautifully illustrated with reproductions of period naturalist drawings and portraits of scientists throughout, this book examines the development of ornithology from ancient times until the present day. In chapters on ancient times, the middle ages, the renaissance, and each century from the 17th until the 20th, French environmental scientist Valerie Chansigaud details the big names of the age, from the widely renowned—Gilbert White, John James Audubon, Alfred Russell Wallace, and Roger Tory Peterson—to the many ornithologists whose contributions are remembered in bird species names, like Pallas, Blyth, and Steller. A 20-page timeline details every significant ornithological event during the past two millennia.
