The early developments were largely through the work of the naturalist Reverend Hilderic Friend (1852–1940). Born in Kent, England, he made numerous trips to Ireland. As a contemporary of Praeger and Southern, both famous naturalists, he has contributed invaluably to the natural history of the island. A group of earthworm researchers decided to follow in the footsteps of the Rev. H. Friend, by re-visiting his source of specimens and tracing the story of the aptly-named earthworm Lumbricus friendi.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||National Biodiversity Data Centre||Journal:||Biodiversity Ireland: Bulletin of the National Biodiversity Data Centre||Volume:||10||Issue:||Winter 2012||Start page:||8||End page:||9||Keywords:||Lumbricus friendi; Study of earthworms; Natural history||Other versions:||http://www.biodiversityireland.ie/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/biodiversity-ireland-winter-2012.pdf||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
