Caption: Konrad Lorenz (1903-1989). The Nobel Prize-winning Austrian zoologist Konrad Lorenz being followed by a group of ducklings. Lorenz studied medicine in Vienna before changing to zoology. His first dis- covery as a scientist occurred when he was given a one-day-old duckling that followed him around as if he were its mother met Dutch zoologist Niko Tinbergen, who later recalled that the two "clicked at once". Together they founded a branch of animal behaviour called ethology, based on observing the instinctive behaviour of animals in the wild. They shared the 1973 Nobel Prize for physiology or medicine with Karl von Frisch.
