Best known for his ideas relating to evolution, French naturalist Jean-Baptiste Lamarck (1744 1829) first built his reputation as a botanist and was elected to the prestigious Academie des Sciences in 1779. His career took a new turn in 1793 when he was made professor of insects, worms and microscopic animals at the Museum National dHistoire Naturelle, although he lacked prior knowledge of the subject area. Undaunted, Lamarck set out to classify organisms which few naturalists had considered worthy of study since Linnaeus. He was the first to distinguish vertebrates from invertebrates a term he coined by the presence of a vertebral column. In this groundbreaking seven-volume work, published between 1815 and 1922, he arranges invertebrates into twelve classes, laying the foundations for the modern study of these organisms. Volume 1, first published in 1815, introduces zoological concepts and begins the classification with the simplest microscopic organisms, the infusoria.
