A-Z Noteworthy Naturalist Index

This lists naturalists in a new database we have started for noteworthy Essex naturalists (including geologists, mineralogists, palaeontologists, botanists, zoologists and other scientists as well as general wildlife naturalists etc). Please help by adding to the database using the noteworthy naturalist form. Most entries will be historical, but entries do not need to be confined to this. You will need to be registered and logged-on to do this.
