Jean Louis Cabanis (it. Jean-Louis Cabanis , March 8, 1816, Berlin - February 20, 1906, ibid) - German ornithologist.
From 1835 to 1839, Cabanis studied natural science at the University of Berlin, then undertook a zoological journey to North America, where he spent more than a year and a half in North and South Carolina and collected rich collections. After returning to Berlin in 1841, he entered the service of the Zoological Museum (de: Museum für Naturkunde (Berlin)), where he worked until 1892. In 1874 he was appointed professor.
Cabanis's studies were at one time important in the taxonomy of birds, he placed his works in the Archiv für Naturgeschichte, Wigmann (1841) and in the Museum Heineanum (1850-1863), he also processed birds in Reisen in Britisch-Guyana ", Schomburgka (1848) and in" Reisen in Ostafrica ", f. der Decken (B., 1869). In 1853, Cabanis founded the Journal für Ornithologie, which since 1868 has served as the organ of the German Ornithological Society founded by Cabanis in Berlin.
Several bird watchers have named the taxa after Cabanis, ex.
- White-browed Bunting (Emberiza cabanisi) (Reichenow, 1875)
- Kabanis' needle-tailed stove-maker (Synallaxis cabanisi) (Berlepsch & Leverkuhn, 1890)
- Tanagra Cabanisa (Tangara cabanisi) (Sclater, 1868)
- Brown Bulbul Cabanis (Phyllastrephus cabanisi) (Sharpe, 1882)
- Gray-backed shrike (Lanius cabanisi) (Hartert, 1906)
- Black-headed Community Weaver (Pseudonigrita cabanisi) (Fischer & Reichenow, 1884)
Cabanis has authored or co-authored a number of bird taxa. Together with Charles Lucien Bonaparte, he described in 1850 the genus Stenostira... He described among other species: white-chested forest wren (Henicorhina leucosticta), scaly short-tailed ant (Hylophylax poecilinotus), yellow-chested tyrant-flat-beak (Rhynchocyclus brevirostris), as well as childbirth Poospiza, Baeolophus and Cichlopsis.
