Excerpt from Heroes of Science: Botanists, Zoologists, and Geologists

Naturalists. Many of the men to whom natural history science owes so much, lived extremely retired and uneventful lives; but a few, and as might have been anticipated, the reformers and epoch makers of their respective sciences, have had their most interesting biographies well written. Abstracts of these biographies form a large por tion of this book; and the author desires to acknowledge the very copious extracts he has made, from sources which he has recognized in the proper places.
