Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Carl August Dohrn (27 June 1806-1892) was a German entomologist. Born at Stettin (Szczecin, now Poland) Carl August was the son of Heinrich Dohrn, who was a wine and spice merchant, and had made the family fortune by trading in sugar. This wealth allowed Carl August to devote himself to his various hobbies; travelling, folk music and insects. Although interested in all orders of insects Dohrn specialised in Coleoptera.His first published paper was in the Entomologische Zeitung for 1845 but he was an active entomologist long before this, since he had acted as Secretary to the Stettin Entomological Society from its foundation in 1839 and edited its journal. He was elected president of the society in 1843 retiring from the post in 1887.
