Schneider-Orelli Otto

The Swiss biologist and oenologist Dr. Otto Schneider-Orelli (1880-1965) studied natural sciences at the University of Bern from 1900 to 1905. Later he was an assistant at the Swiss Experimental Institute for Fruit and Viticulture in Wädenswil, where he worked on plant-physiological, mycological (fungi) and entomological (insects) problems. In 1917 he was appointed lecturer in entomology at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich and in 1929 he was appointed professor. Schneider-Orelli made great contributions to entomological education (entomology) and especially through his extensive research activities in this field. A total of 110 treatises deal with phylloxera (especially in the question of race) and the different types of grape moth (for example "Einbindiger und kreuzzter Traubenwickler" from 1915). He was also successful in the research and development of phylloxera-resistant rootstocks.
