He is responsible for coining the term ''phyllotaxis'' to describe the arrangement of leaves on a plant. He was among the first to notice parthenogenetic reproduction in aphids and established that insects respired through their spiracles.

Deaf from an early age, he also suffered from failing eyesight and had to make use of assistants in later life to help in his research.
