Abstract

Hans Hermann Behr arrived in Adelaide in late 1844 as a newly-graduated doctor interested more in botany, entomology and anthropology. After just one year, he returned to Germany with prolific samples and notes. He returned to Adelaide towards the end of 1848, again exploring and collecting extensively. Within a year he left for the Philippines and after another year had arrived in San Francisco where he firmly established his international reputation.
