Title: Lefalophodon: An Informal History of Evolutionary Biology Web Site
Url: https://www.nceas.ucsb.edu/~alroy/lefa/lophodon.html
Creator: Alroy, John
Publisher: National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis
Description: This is an informal and incomplete guide to the history of evolutionary biology from about 1800 to about 1950. It is maintained by John Alroy. Its main emphases are on the late 19th century and on paleontology. The coverage may become more comprehensive in the near future. Users are welcome to submit comments or suggestions or contributions to the site. The only limits on contributions are that they must follow the site's format and carry your byline. The site's other main features currently are: A timeline of major events between 1800 and 1950; An annotated bibliography of history of biology books; A page of Darwin quotes; A page detailing major 19th century scientific expeditions; Pages for institutions which played a role in the history of evolutionary biology; Minimal biographies of major (and not so major) figures; and a Photo gallery: pages that have photos and little else. The editor is planning to create "famous historical episodes" pages.
