This chapter analyzes the golden age of Lamarckism in the period from 1866 until 1926. It focuses on Ernst Haeckel (1834–1919) and his generation, the generation after them, and the rival evolutionists who continued to refute or reconceive Lamarckism. Some of the nineteenth-century Lamarckians include Theodor Eimer, Edward Drinker Cope (1840–1897), Alpheus Hyatt (1838–1902), and Henry Fairfield Osborn (1857–1935).
