Joseph Sabine

Joseph Sabine

:"For the British general and Member of Parliament, see Joseph Sabine (Governor)"Joseph Sabine (1770 - January 24, 1837) was an English lawyer and naturalist. He was the elder brother of Sir Edward Sabine.

Sabine practiced law until 1808, when he was appointed inspector general of taxes. He held this position until 1835. He had a lifelong interest in natural history. He was an original fellow of the Linnean Society, founded in 1788. He was honorary secretary of the Royal Horticultural Society from 1810 to 1830, and treasurer and vice-chairman of the Zoological Society of London.

Edward Sabine was a member of John Ross's Arctic voyage in 1818. He sent Joseph a specimen of a new gull which had been discovered during the expedition, which Joseph named Sabine's Gull ("Larus sabini") in honour of his brother.

The standard botanical author abbreviation Sabine is applied to species he described.
