Perhaps his two entries should be combined?
1732: Pehr Forsskal, Finish botanist, zoologist and explorer, was born in Helsinki, Finland. He later studied under Linnaeus at Uppsala, and then took part in a Danish royal expedition through the Ottoman Empire.

1732: Peter (or Pehr) Forsskal (also spelled Forskaol, Forskal, Forsskahl), Swedish explorer, was born in Helsinki. As a student at Uppsala, he was among Linnaeus' proteges, and would later explore Egypt and Arabia, collecting botanical and zoological specimen. Several species are named for him.
