On the Ossiferous Cave of Brixham near Torquay


In Palaeontological Memoires and Notes of the Late Hugh Falconer, AM, MD. Volume II, XVIII

London: Robert Hardwicke (1868), illus. 679 pp.

Prepared by Michael Steer

Hugh Falconer MD FRS (29 February 1808 - 31 January 1865) was a Scottish geologist, botanist, palaeontologist, and paleoanthropologist. He studied the flora, fauna, and geology of India, Assam, and Burma, and was the first to suggest the modern evolutionary theory of punctuated equilibrium. He was the first to discover the Siwalik fossil beds, and may also have been the first person to discover a fossil ape. Charles Murchison (26 July 1830 - 23 April 1879) was a physician and a noted authority on fevers and diseases of the liver. His regard for the memory of his friend, Dr. Hugh Falconer, induced him to take great pains in bringing out the latter's Palaeontological Memoirs. Geology was a favourite pursuit with Murchision.
