14016 Steller           Discovered 1994 Jan. 16 by E. W. Elst and C. Pollas at Caussols.
Appointed naturalist on Vitus Bering's second Kamchatka expedition, German botanist Georg Wilhelm Steller (1709-1746) collected some 1100 unknown plants in the vicinity of Irkutsk. He joined Bering in Okhotsk on Kamchatka's western coast and followed him on the expedition that led to the discovery of southeastern Alaska.
