Mivart (mīv′ärt), St. George, an English naturalist, was born at London, Nov. 30, 1827, and educated at Kings College. His chief publications were Genesis of Species, Elementary Anatomy, Man and Apes, Contemporary Evolution, The Cat, Nature and Thought, Types of Animal Life and The Origin of Human Reason. In the main he agreed with Darwin, although working independently of him, and at times he was considered to be radically in opposition to some of the theories of the later Darwinian school.
