Over one hundred species of Western Palearctic birds bear English or Latin names which commemorate people. But who were Stellar, Bonaparte, Sabine and Eleonora and the rest and how did their names become attached to the various species? The book will delight and fascinate the reader, both as a comprehensive reference and an account of the remarkable achievements of the early ornithologists and collectors. Illustrated by Darren Rees.
