Moved to Alexander Agassiz[edit]

I recently moved the article from Alexander Emanuel Agassiz to the more commonly used name of Alexander Agassiz. "Alexander Agassiz" is the primary title used in many international databases use (see e.g. [VIAF] and [WorldCat], and the middle name is not warranted for disambiguation purposes. I've checked for double redirects, but some templates may need to be adjusted to display bold. --Animalparty-- (talk) 03:23, 5 April 2015 (UTC)

Bibliographic citations incorrect and misleading[edit]

Most of the bibliographic citations to his works are incorrect. Most of them are articles within serial publications, notably the Bulletin of the Museum of Comparative Zoology, and the Memoirs of the Museum of Comparative Zoology; they are not separately published books, and thus the correct from of citation should be to the name of the serial, volume number, and pagination. The form used for many of them in the article is "Cambridge: University Press", which is not only incorrect, but positively misleading, because that form of publisher attribution would be usually read as published by Cambridge University Press, in Cambridge, England.
