(1829-1915) German zoologist and author, whose Rulaman. Erzählung aus der Zeit des Höhlenmenschen und des Höhlenbären ["Rulaman: A Nature-Historical Tale from the Time of the Cave-man and the Cave-bear"] (1878), is an early example of Prehistoric SF, whose eponymous protagonist, a caveman, first resists a better-armed usurping culture from the east, though the allures of Exogamy and Sex cause him to become part of the new world.
