Richard Conniff decided to put together a "Wall of the Dead" as a memorial for all those brave, early naturalists that helped science better understand life -- and who have died in the most unnatural of ways.

We go to great lengths commemorating soldiers who have died fighting wars for their countries. Why not do the same for the naturalists who still sometimes give up everything in the effort to understand life? Neither would diminish the sacrifice of the other. In fact, many early naturalists were also soldiers, or, like Charles Darwin aboard HMS Beagle, were embedded with military expeditions.
