Part of this site’s graphics are based on the artwork by Ernst Haeckel, a nineteenth century German biologist, naturalist, philosopher, physician, professor and artist who discovered, described and named thousands of new species, mapped a genealogical tree relating all life forms, coined many terms in biology and promoted Darwin’s ideas in Germany. Here you find all the plates of Haeckel’s 1904 Kunstformen der Natur. Right-click and save a pick of Haeckel’s ‘Kunstformen’ (1280 x 800): Trochilidae; Tineidae; Copepoda, or view thumbnails below:
