German biologist, zoologist, evolutionist, naturalist, philosopher, physician and artist who discovered, described and named thousands of new species, mapped genealogical tree relating all life forms, and coined many terms in biology. He was a strong proponent of Darwinism.
Haeckel saw evolution as the basis for a unified explanation of all nature and the rationale of a philosophical approach that denied final causes and the teleology of the church. His “General Morphology of Organisms”, 1866, presented many of his evolutionary ideas.
Haeckel named thousands of new species from 1859 to 1887.
Haeckel died on 9 August 1919, Jena.
