The Biological Stations of Europe

  title={The Biological Stations of Europe},
  author={Charles Atwood Kofoid},
PROF. KOFOID'S report referred to below admirably fulfils the purposes for which he prepared it, namely, to put in convenient form for reference an account of the history, organisation, equipment, and work of the various biological stations of Europe, and to indicate their relations to research and to education of advanced or popular character. In the introduction he lays down some general guiding principles regarding the situation and functions of stations of different types—for research… Expand
SISIS ABSTRACT In the 1870s, the life sciences witnessed the rise of a new site for
scientific research: the marine station. This new workplace brought the laboratory of the biologist closer to the natural surroundings of the marine organisms that he/she was studying, lt wasExpand
Emilio Corti's 'Limnofauna Italica' and the origins of limnology in Italy in comparison with the current scientific scenario
An overall increase in most research topics was confirmed, and it was confirmed that some research topics, especially related to human activities, increased more than the others, and that the studies on malaria showed a peculiar trend. Expand

The Rovinj station has always been involved in studies of the Adriatic Sea, especially in its northern part, and contributed much to general knowledge of oceanography, of the physics and chemistry of the sea, but its paramount contribution is to various disciplines of marine biological sciences.

The history of the marine biological stations and the research of coastal biodiversity )
The sea is not the normal living place for us, humans. It is not our habitat and during a big part of our history it has been the pass way, or the void, in between lands. In that way, the organismsExpand
The history of biological exploration of the bay of villefranche.
The Bay of Villefranche has been a site of discovery of new life forms for over 200 years and the total number of new forms described range in “age” from those recognized for 205 years to the one described a few months ago and numbers 103 by my count. Expand

Looking back from the 1990s it seems natural to view the work done in the Biologische Anstalt Helgoland by Friedrich Heincke and his colleagues, beginning in 1892, as marine ecology or marine biology, but historical analysis shows this view to be untenable. Expand
Historical connections between early marine science research and dissemination: the case study of aquarium Vasco Da Gama (Portugal) from late 19th century to mid-20th century
In the late 19th century, there was a bloom of public aquariums throughout Europe. Some of them were built for entertainment purposes, whereas others were connected to marine science stations. ThisExpand
