SACON is located at Anaikatty 24 kms northwest of Coimbatore on the way to Silent Valley. His contemporary Alfred Russel Wallace also noted these variations and the geographical separations between different forms leading to the study of biogeography. He included folk beliefs such as those of anglers. We can best judge of his labours from an abstract reprinted in the Comptes rendus (iii. pp. 12-20) and reprinted in the Annales des sciences naturelles (ser. 2, vol. vi. pp. 107-115), and from the report upon them by Isidore Geoffroy 1 He says from Oken's Naturgeschichte far Schulen, published in 1821, but the division is to be found in that author's earlier Lehrbuch der Zoologie (ii. p. 371), which appeared in 1816.

Filoplumes: hairlike feathers used to monitor the movement and position of adjacent vaned feathers. Such wet-specimens have special value in physiological and anatomical study, apart from providing better quality of DNA for molecular studies. [65] Freeze drying of specimens is another technique that has the advantage of preserving stomach contents and anatomy, although it tends to shrink making it less reliable for morphometrics. [66] [67] The study of birds in the field was helped enormously by improvements in optics.
