Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: Ernst Haeckel: Pioneer of modern science

(Friedrich-Schiller-Universitaet Jena) Evolutionary biologist Ernst Haeckel became the first person to define the term ecology in his work published in 1866, entitled 'General Morphology of Organisms'. Science historians and biologists from the Friedrich Schiller University Jena (Germany) have now worked out just how close his original classification is to our modern understanding of ecology -- at the invitation of the renowned journal Trends in Ecology & Evolution.
