Peter Schousboe

Peter Schousboe (1766–1832) was a Danish botanist. [1]


Peder Kofod Anker Schousboe was born in Rønne, Denmark and died in Tangier, Morocco, having served as Danish consul general in Tangier from 1800 onwards. He conducted a botanical expedition in Spain and Morocco during the years 1791-93. In 1800, he published his major work Om Væxtriget i Marokko. Among the plants that he was the first to describe was the popular garden flower Salvia interrupta; the bushwillow genus Schousboea (now considered a synonym of Combretum) was named in his honour.[2]
