Richard Lydekker Books

Richard Lydekker (1849 - 1915) was an English naturalist, geologist, author and sportsman. He was an associate of the taxidermist, Rowland Ward and it was he who spotted that J H Patterson's eland was a different subspecies when it was being mounted at Rowland Ward's studio. In 1874 he joined the Geological Survey of India and made studies of the vertebrate paleontology of northern India. Lydekker was also influential in the science of biogeography. In 1895 he delineated the biogeographical boundary through Indonesia, known as Lydekker's Line, that separates Wallacea on the west from Australia-New Guinea on the east. Lydekker worked for the British Museum of Natural History for over twenty years and remains to this day one of the great and most revered authorities on the wildlife and fauna of the world. He wrote many scientific articles and books but never neglected the sportsman interests in natural history.
