Early women ichthyologists

  • Patricia Stocking Brown
Part of the Developments in environmental biology of fishes 15 book series (DEBF, volume 15)


This paper is a brief summary of some of the women who have worked in the field of ichthyology or studied the biology of fishes in a somewhat broader area. All of the women included were born prior to 1920. It does not include Ethelwynn Trewavas since her life and work are covered in a detailed article by David Noakes. The list of women covered here is not meant to be complete, especially with respect to eastern Europe or Asia, and I welcome suggestions of additional women along with biographical information about them for future work.
