Description

Biology

Etymology

  • Atys. God of the Phrygians, companion of Cybele.
  • Blainvillianus. Probably after Prof. Henri-Marie Ducrotay de Blainville, (1777-1850). He got interested in zoology after listening a lecture by Cuvier who took care of and educated him (partly together with Lamarck and Duméril). Eventually, he became Cuvier’s successor as a professor of comparative anatomy and became himself a highly esteemed lecturer and a devoted researcher. In 1834 he created the word “paléontologie”.
