Leonhard Fuchs (1501-66) was the German naturalist and botanist who gave his name to the genus of South American flowering shrubs, Fuchsia. 

Fuchs was a professor of medicine at the University of Tubingen  in Germany and compiled a book of medicinal plants, which became a standard work.  

The fuchsia was named in his honor in 1703.
