Hats off to Tegetmeier!

WB Tegetmeier

W.B. Tegetmeier (1816–1912).

Today marks the 196th anniversary of the birth of one of my favourite mini-heroes of science, W.B. Tegetmeier: a great example (along with Darwin) of how amateur scientists can make important contributions to our understanding of the natural world.

To celebrate, I have written this mini-article in his honour.
