notes/comments: From Wolff & Petersen 1991 (citation)- p. 669, "The Danish scientist A. S. Ørsted (Danish spelling, also published as Oersted and Örsted) is well known amongst polychaetologists for his taxonomic studies of Arctic and northern European polychaetes. It is less well known that in the 1840's he undertook a long and strenuous expedition of the Caribbean region, where he collected large numbers of marine invertebrates. However, during the trip he became more and more interested in botany, and after his return to Copenhagen he never returned to his previous studies on polychaetes and other invertebrates."
