Francis Trevelyan Buckland (1826–1880)

Buckland, Francis Trevelyan. An English naturalist; born at Oxford, Dec. 17, 1826; died on Dec. 19, 1880. His preferences were for practical science; and after retiring from his place as surgeon to the Second Life Guards he founded the journal Land and Water, of which he was editor. He was an authority on fish-culture, and as such was consulted by foreign governments. He was a resolute opponent of Darwinism. Besides his works on fish-culture, he wrote; ‘Log-Book of a Fisherman and Zoölogist’ (1876); ‘Notes and Jottings on “Animal Life’ (1882); ‘Curiosities of Natural History.’ (See Critical and Biographical Introduction).
