Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Ignacio Bol var y Urrutia (Madrid, 1850 - Mexico, 1944) was a Spanish naturalist and entomologist, and one of the founding fathers of Spanish entomology. He helped found the Real Sociedad Espa ola de Historia Natural (Royal Spanish Natural History Society) in 1871, and was the author of several books and of over 1000 species. After the Spanish Civil War he was exiled to Mexico when the nationalist government harshly repressed Republican militants and sympathisers, as retaliation for the equally harsh repression of clergy and nationalist militants on the opposite side. Here he was made Doctor honoris of the National Autonomous University of Mexico. In Mexico he was devoted mainly to entomology. In this field he wrote more than 300 books and monographs and discovered more than thousand new species and about 200 genera.show more
