Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Giovanni Antonio Scopoli (sometimes Latinized as Johannes Antonius Scopolius) (June 3, 1723 - May 8, 1788) was an Italian physician and naturalist. Scopoli was born at Cavalese in the Val di Fiemme of Tyrol, the son of a lawyer of Italian descent. He obtained a degree in medicine at University of Innsbruck, and practiced as a doctor in Cavalese and Venice. Much of his time was spent in the Alps, collecting plants and insects, of which he made outstanding collections. He spent two years as private secretary to the Count of Seckan, and then was appointed as physician of the mercury mines in Idrija, a small town in the Habsburg realm, remaining there for sixteen years. In 1761, he published De Hydroargyro Idriensi Tentamina on the symptoms of mercury poisoning among mercury miners.show more
