Scientist Friedrich August Marschall von Bieberstein (1768-1826)

Germany. Botanical author. Bieberstein was an early explorer of the flora and archaeology of the southern portion of Imperial Russia, including the Caucasus and Novorossiya. He complied the first comprehensive flora catalogue of the Crimeo-Caucasian region. In 1810, he published a work with illustrations of south Russian plants entitled 'Centuria plantarum rariorum Rossiae meridionalis', in which 50 of his own hand-coloured engravings can be seen.
