Through his numerous papers, articles, some books and lectures, a prolific palaeontologist Rudolf J. Prokop (Department of Palaeontology, National Museum, Praha) has become known in our country and abroad as one of the best European echinoderm specialists of our time. His special interest over the years has been the echinoderm fauna of the Bohemian Lower Palaeozoic. A brief biography and bibliography of him is to be found in two articles by V. Petr in the 1994 issue of this journal and in the 1994 issue of Cesky kras.
