Wladimir de Schoenefeld (12 January 1816 in Berlin – 8 September 1875 in Paris) was a German-born, French botanist.[1]

From 1817 to 1833 he lived in France, then moved back to Berlin, where he stayed with botanist Karl Sigismund Kunth for several years prior to his return to Paris (1840). In Paris, he studied botany under Adrien de Jussieu and became good friends with Ernest Cosson.[2][3]

In 1854 he was a founding member of the Société Botanique de France, serving as its secretary-general from 1862 to 1875.[2] Following his death, Ernest Cosson published the biography, "Notice biographique sur Wladimir de Schoenefeld" (1876).[4] The botanical genus Schoenefeldia (family Poaceae) was named in his honor by Karl Sigismund Kunth.[5]
