NOTES

Edward Charles Stuart Baker, a British ornithologist and police officer, catalogued the birds of India and produced the second edition of the Fauna of British India which included the introduction of trinomial nomenclature. He made a comprehensive collection of nearly 50,000 Indian birds' eggs, part of which he donated to the Natural History Museum, where he spent a lot of time working on the egg collections from India and Thailand. His eight-volume contribution to The Fauna of British India, Including Ceylon and Burma series became the standard reference work on the subject. [wikipedia];
