    Studies of Animal Populations From Lamarck to Darwin.Frank N. Egerton - 1968 - Journal of the History of Biology 1 (2):225-259.
    Darwin's theory of evolution brought to an end the static view of nature. It was no longer possible to think of species as immortal, with secure places in nature. Fluctuation of population could no longer be thought of as occurring within definite limits which had been set at the time of creation. Nor was it any longer possible to generalize from the differential reproductive potentials, or from a few cases of mutualism between species, that everything in nature was “fitted to (...)

    Humboldt, Darwin, and Population.Frank N. Egerton - 1970 - Journal of the History of Biology 3 (2):325-360.
    I have attempted to clarify some of the pathways in the development of Darwin's thinking. The foregoing examples of influence by no means include all that can be found by comparing Darwin's writings with Humboldt's. However, the above examples seem adequate to show the nature and extent of this influence. It now seems clear that Humboldt not only, as had been previously known, inspired Darwin to make a voyage of exploration, but also provided him with his basic orientation concerning how (...)

    Leeuwenhoek as a Founder of Animal Demography.Frank N. Egerton - 1968 - Journal of the History of Biology 1 (1):1-22.
    Leeuwenhoek's observations relating to animal population, though scattered through many letters written during a period of over forty years, when seen in toto, were important contributions to the subject now known as animal demography. He maintained enough contact with other scientists to have received encouragement and some helpful suggestions, but the language barrier and the novelty of doing microscopic work forced him to be resourceful, inventive, and original. His multifarious investigations impinged upon population biology before he discovered a direct interest (...)

    Richard Bradley's Understanding of Biological Productivity: A Study of Eighteenth-Century Ecological Ideas.Frank N. Egerton - 1969 - Journal of the History of Biology 2 (2):391-410.
    Bradley succeeded in conceptualizing biological productivity in terms—monetary investment vs. profit—that could be applied to organisms as different in form and habitat as trees, grapevines, and crayfish.41 This form of measurement was not precise enough to have served as a basis for actual comparisons of production rate. His way of thinking, however, could have been applied with other terms of measurement once the usefulness of such measurements had been realized. The realization that production rate is an important factor is implicit (...)
