Caption: Louis Agassiz (1807-1873), Swiss-American palaeontologist. Jean Louis Rodolphe Agassiz was born and worked in Switzerland until 1846, when he left for the USA. He produced a catalogue of fossil fish from Brazil in 1829, and completed an extensive history of European fish in 1842. After this he completed a pioneering five-volume work on fossil fish in 1843. Outside the field of ichthyology, Agassiz was the first to discover the Ice Ages. His research on glaciers led him to conclude that ice sheets advanced and retreated over Europe and North America. He was also a leading critic of Darwin's evolution theories.
