Research

Krause researched languages of Central and West Africa, and is credited with labeling the Kwa languages.

Political Beliefs

Krause was an anti-colonialist, and did not cooperate with the German Empire's goals of imposing colonies in Africa. Akinwumi cites this as the reason for which Krause's scientific reputation was undermined in Germany.
