Caption: Miriam Rothschild (1908-2005), British naturalist. Rothschild took an interest in the natural world from an early age. Although she received no formal education until the age 17 she published over 300 scientific papers during her lifetime and authored a number of books. She became the leading authority on fleas and in 1972 described their jumping mechanism for the first time. She did extensive research into the toxicity of insects and the methods they used to warn predators of this. She campaigned for animal rights and the conservation of wildflowers and their habitats. She was made a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1985 and a Dame in 2000.
