Ludwig Karl Eduard Schneider

Ludwig Karl Eduard Schneider (26 June 1809 in Sudenburg 9 February 1889 in Schönebeck) was a German politician and botanist, known for his studies of flora native to what is now called Saxony-Anhalt.

He studied law and natural sciences at the University of Berlin, where one of his teachers was botanist Carl Sigismund Kunth. In 1844 he was elected mayor of Schönebeck, and from 1860, worked as a city councilor in Berlin. From 1861 to 1866 he was a member of the Deutsche Fortschrittspartei (German Progress Party) to the Prussian House of Representatives. In this position he was a decided opponent of Otto von Bismarck's policy. In 1870 he relocated to the town of Zerbst.[1][2]

In 1866, with Paul Friedrich August Ascherson and others, he founded a naturalist association known as the Aller-Vereins ("Aller Society"). In Zerbst he served as chairman of Naturwissenschaftlichen Vereins ("Society of Natural Sciences").[1]
