SCHULZE, Franz Eilhard (1840—). A German zoölogist, born in Eldena and educated at Rostock and Bonn. He was professor at Rostock 1865-73, at Gratz, until 1884, and then at Berlin, where he became director of the Zoölogical Institute. Schulze sailed in the Pomerania expedition, while he was at Rostock; specialized on sponges, and wrote Americanische Hexactinelliden. His most important single discovery was that of the sponge Halisarca, a mere germinal cell (1877).
