List of organisms named after famous people

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

In biological nomenclature, organisms often receive scientific names that honor a person. A taxon (e.g. species or genus, plural: taxa) named in honor of another entity is an eponymous taxon, and names specifically honoring a person or persons are known as patronyms. Scientific names are generally formally published in peer-reviewed journal articles or larger monographs along with descriptions of the named taxa and ways to distinguish them from other taxa. Following rules of Latin grammar, species or subspecies names derived from a man's name often end in -i or -ii if named for an individual or -orum for a group of men or mixed sexes, while those named for a woman end in -ae or -arum for a group of women.

This list includes organisms named after famous people or ensembles (including bands and comedy troupes), but excluding companies and institutions. It does not include organisms named for fictional entities, for biologists or other scientists,[a] nor for associates or family members of researchers who are not otherwise notable.
