Bohemian trilobites (central Czech Republic) have been collected and studied since the 1700's. Within this relatively small area of only a few hundred square miles there have been nearly 1300 species described. It was made famous by a french scientist Joachim Barrande who dedicated much of his life in the 1800's to studying and describing Bohemian trilobites. His work is world renown and deeply influenced work in invertebrate paleontology to this day.
