Carl Friedrich Bruch

Carl Friedrich Bruch (March 11, 1789, Zweibrücken – December 21, 1857) was a German ornithologist. He was the younger brother of bryologist Philipp Bruch (1781–1847).[1]

Up until 1855, he worked as a notary in Mainz. He was the author of numerous articles in the journals Isis and Journal für Ornithologie.[1] He was a catalyst towards the establishment of the Rheinische Naturforschende Gesellschaft (1834).[2]

In 1828, he proposed a system of trinomial nomenclature for species, in contrast to the binomial system of Carl Linnaeus. The following are a list of ornithological species described by Bruch:
