Details

‘How do we know what we know about biodiversity and, conversely, why do we seem to know so little?’ Kristin Johnson approaches those questions through a study of Karl Jordan (1861–1959), a taxonomist and Curator of Insects at the Natural History Museum, London, who devoted his life to naming, describing and ordering a small subset of Earth’s biodiversity – over 3,000 species of Lepidoptera, Coleoptera and Siphonaptera.
