Frédéric Albert Constantin Weber
In 1852 he received his medical doctorate from the University of Strasbourg with the thesis De l'hémorrhagie des méninges cérébrales. In 1864–67 he served as a military physician on a French military expedition in Mexico.
He is the taxonomic author or co-author of many species of cacti. He also described a few species of agave, including Agave tequilana, the tequila agave (1902). The genus Weberocereus commemorates his name.
