Charles-Georges Le Roy
Le Roy's publications began as texts on the behaviour and sensitivity of animals, published under the pseudonym of "the physician of Nuremberg." These appeared in the Encyclopédie méthodique in 1774.
Le Roy was an early advocate of the inheritance of acquired characteristics.
