(Tityridae; Brown-winged Schiffornis S. turdina) Prof. Dr Moriz Schiff (1823-1896) German biologist, surgeon in the Baden revolution 1849, pioneer anatomist and endocrinologist, physiologist, Prof. of Comparative Anatomy Univ. of Bern 1854-1863, Prof. of Physiology Istituto di Studii Superiori, Florence 1863-1876, Prof. of Physiology Univ. of Geneva 1876-1896; Gr. ορνις ornis, ορνιθος ornithos  bird (see Massornis); "34.
