Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Karl Heinrich Emil Koch (6 June 1809 - 25 May 1879) was a German botanist. He is best known for his botanical explorations in the Caucasus region, including northeast Turkey. Unfortunately, most of his collections have today been lost. He is also known as the first professional horticultural officer in Germany. He was born in Ettersberg near Weimar, Germany. He studied at the universities of Jena and W rzburg and taught, as privatdocent, at the University of Jena beginning 1834. He became an extraordinary professor in 1836. He undertook a journey of research into southern Russia in 1836-38, and a second in 1843-44. The fruit of this second trip, in which he also visited Asia Minor, Armenia, the Caspian Sea, and the Caucasus Mountains, was his Wanderungen im Orient (Weimar, 1846-47).show more
