Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Hugo von Mohl (8 April 1805 - 1 April 1872) was a German botanist from Stuttgart. He was a son of the W rttemberg statesman Benjamin Ferdinand von Mohl (1766-1845), the family being connected on both sides with the higher class of state officials of W rttemberg. While a pupil at the gymnasium he pursued botany and mineralogy in his leisure time, till in 1823 he entered the University of T bingen. After graduating with distinction in medicine he went to Munich, where he met a distinguished circle of botanists, and found ample material for research. This seems to have determined his career as a botanist, and he started in 1828 those anatomical investigations which continued till his death. In 1832 he was appointed professor of botany in T bingen, a post which he never left. Unmarried, his pleasures were in his laboratory and library, and in perfecting optical apparatus and microscopic preparations, for which he showed extraordinary manual skill.show more
