Hi,

#8097. Name the German zoologist, naturalist, eugenicist, philosopher, physician, professor, marine biologist, and artist  (16 February 1834 – 9 August 1919) who discovered, described and named thousands of new species, mapped a genealogical tree relating all life forms, and coined many terms in biology, including ecology, phylum, phylogeny, and Protista.

#8098. Name the Italian biologist and pathologist known for his works on the central nervous system. (7 July 1843 – 21 January 1926) He studied medicine at the University of Pavia (where he later spent most of his professional career) between 1860 and 1868 under the tutelage of Cesare Lombroso. Inspired by pathologist Giulio Bizzozero, he pursued research in the nervous system.

He with Spanish biologist Santiago Ramón y Cajal were jointly given the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 1906 "in recognition of their work on the structure of the nervous system".
