OccupationGerman ornithologist

Hermann Grote (7 July 1882 – 12 August 1951, Berlin) was a German ornithologist known for his studies of African avifauna.

While serving as a director of a sisal plantation in German East Africa, he published papers on the local avifauna (from 1909 to 1913). As a P.O.W. of the Russians during World War I, he learned the Russian language, a skill set he subsequently used to translate Russian ornithological works into German. During his career, he was associated with ornithological research performed at the Museum für Naturkunde in Berlin.[1]

In 1923 he was elected a corresponding fellow of the American Ornithologists' Union.[1]
