Die Schriftenreihe "Stapfia" wurde nach dem international bekannten oberösterreichischen Botaniker Otto Stapf benannt, der am 23. März 1857 in Perneck bei Bad Ischl geboren wurde. Er studierte bei Prof. Wiesner an der Universität Wien, wo er 1882 promovierte und sich 1887 habilitierte. Nach Sammelreisen im Orient wurde Otto Stapf 1891 als "Assistent für Indien" an den königlich-botanischen Garten in Kew bei London berufen und 1909 zum Assistent-Direktor des Royal Herbariums ernannt. Seine Arbeiten, u.a. als Herausgeber des "Botanical Magazine" und des sechsbändigen "Index Londinensis" wurden mit zahlreichen Anerkennungen gewürdigt. Im Ruhestand 1922 kehrte Otto Stapf wiederholt nach Österreich zurück, wo er am 3. August 1922 in Innsbruck starb.
