Ernst Haeckel on Slate
Over at Slate they have a slide-show essay about Ernst Haeckel, 19th-century evolutionary theorist and subject of the new film Proteus.
Haeckel discovered, described and classified thousands of new species of one-celled sea creatures and he contributed with graphic work too.
This is what Science Magazine said about Nature's Beauty and Haeckel's Talents. Science Magazine is a member of AAAS and Evolution is on frontline in their pressroom. AAAS has defended the teaching of evolution in public school science classrooms.
Haeckel's has beautifull artwork, I think:
