ESA Bulletin Series: "A History of the Ecological Sciences"

Thanks to Kevin of The Other 95% for pointing me to this series of articles from the Ecological Society of America’s Bulletin. Up to its 27th installment, “A History of the Ecological Sciences” covers natural history topics from antiquity through the 19th century. It remains a current project from Frank N. Egerton, a retired historian from the University of Wisconsin who has written extensively on the history of ecology, including History of American Ecology (1978) and Hewett Cottrell Watson: Victorian Plant Ecologist and Evolutionist (2003).
