TitleMorgan, Conwy Lloyd: certificate of election to the Royal Society
CitationProfessor of Biology and Geology, University College, Bristol, and Principal of the same College. Correspondent of the Academy of Sciences of Philadelphia and New York. As a geologist, Professor Lloyd Morgan has done a considerable amount of original work in Pembrokeshire and the Bristol district. His chief claim to scientific distinction, however, rests upon his careful experiments and observations on the habits, instincts, and intelligence of Animals, and his critical study of the true biological significance of the facts and their bearing upon some of the most fundamental problems of Organic Evolution. The three volumes which he has published on these subjects are of very high merit, and, in the opinion of the signers of this certificate, place their author in the first rank as a philosophical biologist. Author of the following memoirs: - (1) 'Animal Life and Intelligence,' 1890; (2) 'An Introduction to Comparative Psychology,' 1894; (3) 'Habit and Instinct,' 1896; and of the following geological papers: - 'On the Pebidian Volcanic Series of St David's (Quart Journ Geol Soc, vol xlvi, 1890); 'On the SW Extension of the Clifton Fault' (ibid, vol xli, 1885); and twelve geological papers in the Proc Bristol Nat Soc, 1884-1890, and other local scientific periodicals.
