Caption: Dissection of a mayfly by Swammerdam. Illustration made by Swammerdam in 1675 after a dissection of a mayfly larva taken from his book Ephemeri vita. Jan Swammerdam (1637-80) was an outstanding microscopist, and was the pioneer of modern entomology. Much of his work was not discovered until after his death, and was posthumously published as the Bible of Nature in 1737.
