The work of Philip Henry Gosse encouraged the Victorian fascination with marine biology and the ecology of the seashore. In this lecture Professor John Plunkett will explore Gosse’s role as the leading figure in an upsurge of popular scientific writing about the Devon coastline, which played an important role in the growth of popular science during the period.
