Hemprich Data

The Africa explorer Wilhelm Friedrich Hemprich conducted extensive studies on the animals and plants of Africa and discovered several new species. As a result, we today know several animals and plants, which are named Hemprich. Usually, Hemprich can be found in the Latin species name, e.g. "acropora hemprichii", where the Latin "hemprichii" means "Hemprich's". Besides the Latin species names, a few of the animals like “Hemprich’s Gull” are directly named Hemprich.
