Florentino Ameghino (September 18, 1854 - August 6, 1911) was an Argentine naturalist, paleontologist, anthropologist and zoologist. Born in Luj n, son of Italian immigrants, Ameghino was a self-taught naturalist, and focused his study on the lands of the southern Pampas. He formed one of the largest collections of fossils of the world at the time, which served him as base for numerous geological and paleontological studies. He also investigated the possible presence of prehistoric man in the Pampas and made several controversial claims about human origins in South America.show more
