Table 3. Scientific staff (research scientists and biologists) in Zoology since 1886. A few individuals were on contract or were technicians before becoming qualified as biologists or scientists or were postdoctoral students. The starting date given is when they became scientists on permanent staff and the end date is when they were no longer officially on staff. Many scientists, however, remained as honorary research associates after retirement. Earlier entomologists researched more than one order so these are listed in order of decreasing importance (by number of publications).
