Abu Abbas Ahmad Ibn Muhammad Ibn Mufarraj, often called al-Nabatî, or Ibn Rûmiya (son of the Christian woman), also Al-Hafiz (he who knows the Qur'an and Hadith [Tradition] by heart), was a Hispano-Muslim botanist born in Seville. His knowledge of plants was primarily derived from his direct study of them, and he seems to have been interested in them for their own sake, not just for medical purposes.
