"Cambridge University Library L1 1 14, F. 46r-v: A Late Medieval Natural Scientist at Work"
D. Thomas Benediktson
Neophilologus, 86:2 (April), 2002, 171-177
 

"Many catalogues of animals and sounds exist in medieval glossaries, poems, or other types of text. Most descend from a list associated with Polemius Silvius, one associated with Phocas, one associated with Aldhelm, or one associated with the poem De Philomela. Some are mixtures, editions even, of lists from multiple sources. One such text in Cambridge University Library shows a 'scientist' using scientific methods to classify and organize linguistic material." - abstract
