Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Georg Johann Pfeffer (1854-1931) was a German zoologist, primarily a malacologist, a scientist who studied mollusks. Pfeffer was born in Berlin. In 1887 he became curator of the Natural History Museum of Hamburg (Naturhistorisches Museum zu Hamburg), which was established in 1843 and desstroyed during World War II. Pfeffer's published writings were mainly about cephalopods. When Pfeffer's name is listed as an authority for a taxon such as the land snail genus Lamellaxis Strebel & Pfeffer, 1882, it is important to note that his name is not simply an orthographic error for the more commonly encountered molluscan authority Pfeiffer, i.e. Ludwig Karl Georg Pfeiffer, who lived 50 years earlier, from 1805 to 1877.show more
