Carl Friedrich Bruch
Up until 1855, he worked as a notary in Mainz. He was the author of numerous articles in the journals Isis and Journal für Ornithologie. He was a catalyst towards the establishment of the Rheinische Naturforschende Gesellschaft (1834).
In 1828, he proposed a system of trinomial nomenclature for species, in contrast to the binomial system of Carl Linnaeus. The following are a list of ornithological species described by Bruch:
- Dalmatian pelican, (Pelecanus crispus), 1832
- Hartlaub's gull, (Chroicocephalus hartlaubii), 1853
- Red-legged kittiwake, (Rissa brevirostris), 1853
- Sooty gull (Ichthyaetus hemprichii), 1853.
