Caption: Classification. Historical artwork showing the taxonomic classification of animal species according to Cuvier. The classification runs from cellular organisms (number 1, top left corner), considered by Cuvier to be the "simplest" of animals, to humans, the most "advanced" (number 140, bottom right corner). Baron Georges Cuvier (1769-1832) did much to establish the modern techniques of animal classification, extending the work of Linnaeus. From Mathematische und Naturwissenschaften by Johann Geog Heck, 1860.
