Notes: Explanatory text for wall charts produced by Leuckart, the famous German zoologist and parasitologist. Leuckart started his academic career studying medicine at the University of Gottingen but moved into zoology, studying marine invertebrates and later parasitology. He was a brilliant teacher and researcher, attracting students from all over the world and making some key discoveries on the taxonomy of invertebrates and the biology of tapeworms. In 1869 he was appointed professor of zoology at the University of Leipzig. His wallcharts (Wandtafeln) were produced between 1877 and 1892 were widely used as teaching aids. In the days before slide projection, all of the leading universities in the world purchased these charts for teaching undergraduates. The charts were hung up at the front of a lecture theatre and being of large size were visible at the back of the room.
