* Hermann Friedrich Albert von Ihering (1850–1930) was a German-Brazilian zoologist. Between 1893 and 1894, Ihering helped to found the Museu Paulista, in São Paulo, and became its first director. His son Rodolpho Theodor Wilhelm Gaspar von Ihering (1883-1939) was a Brazilian zoologist and biologist, who is considered to be one of the founders of Pisciculture in Brazil. After working in the same musuem as his father, from 1927 he concentrated his research in the field of ichthyology, describing many new species of fish. He began to work at the Biological Institute of Agricultural and Animal Defence of São Paulo, as assistant and later as head of the Zoology Section. The institute was dedicated to the study of the breeding biology of fish of the region.
