Johann Anton G ldenst dt (April 26, 1745 in Riga, Latvia - March 23, 1781 in St. Petersburg, Russia) was a Baltic German naturalist and explorer in Russian service. G ldenst dt lost both his parents early and from 1763 onwards studied pharmacy, botany and natural history in Berlin. At the age of 22 he obtained his doctorate in medicine at the University of Frankfurt in 1767. In the following year he joined the Russian Imperial Academy of Sciences' expedition sent by Catherine II of Russia to explore the Russian empire's southern frontier. G ldenst dt travelled through Ukraine and the Astrakhan region, as well as the northern Caucasus and Georgia, both of which were almost entirely beyond the borders of the Russian empire.
