Carl Heinrich Ebermaier (4 February 1802, Rheda - 1 January 1870,[1] Düsseldorf) was a German physician and author on medicinal botany. He was the son of pharmacist/physician Johann Erdwin Christoph Ebermaier (1768-1825).

Background[edit]

In 1824 he received his medical doctorate in Berlin, afterwards settling into a medical practice in Düsseldorf. During his career he served as a medical adviser and as a privy councilor.[2]

The plant genus Ebermaiera (family Acanthaceae) is named after him.[3] He collaborated with botanist Theodor Friedrich Ludwig Nees von Esenbeck (1787-1837) on the textbook "Handbuch der medicinisch-pharmaceutischen Botanik".
