Scientist Karl Johann Maximowicz
Maximovich spent most of his life studying the flora of the countries he had visited in the Far East, and naming many new species. He worked at the Saint Petersburg Botanical Gardes from 1852 as curator of the Herbarium collection, becoming Director in 1869. From 1853-1857 he traveled around the world. He travelled to the Amur region in eastern Asia. From 1859 to 1864 he also he visited China, Korea and Japan. He was particularly involved with the flora of Japan. He also studied the flora of Tibet, concluding that it was chiefly composed of immigrants from Mongolia and the Himalaya.
