Was Bonaparte's Gull named after Napoleon? Was the Pallas' Warbler the same individual as the discoverer of Pallas's Sandgrouse, and if so did he discover the two birds at the same time on the same journey? Covering 2235 birds and 1124 individuals, this book answers these questions and many more by presenting a potted biography of every individual who has given their name to a species of bird.
Something of interest and value for anyone who enjoys birds.
