Caption: Thomas Bell (1792-1880), English zoologist. Bell inherited a keen interest in natural history form his mother, and carried this through while training as a dental surgeon in London. His amateur research led to becoming professor of zoology at King's College, London, at the same time lecturing on anatomy at Guy's Hospital. His work on crustacea was world-renowned, and he described many of the reptile specimens brought back by Darwin. As president of the Linnean Society, he chaired the meeting at which Darwin and Russell's papers on evolution were read, although he failed to consider them of any significance.
