This chart was inspired by an image from "The Naturalist's Miscellany: Or Coloured Figures of Natural Objects; Drawn and Described Immediately From Nature" (1789-1813) by George Kearsley Shaw, with Frederick Polydore Nodder (artist and engraver)
George Kearsley Shaw, 1751-1813, was an English botanist and zoologist. Shaw was born at Bierton, Buckinghamshire, and was educated at Magdalen Hall, Oxford, receiving his M.A. in 1772. He took up the profession of medical practitioner. In 1786 he became the assistant lecturer in botany at the University of Oxford. He was a co-founder of the Linnean Society in 1788 and became a fellow of the Royal Society in 1789. In 1791 Shaw became assistant keeper of the natural history department at the British Museum.
