Born: 1864, Petersburg, Russia.



Professor at the University and Director of the Botanical Garden at Moscow, stayed for some months at Buitenzorg, W. Java, making provisional studies about the development of some plants belonging partly to the mosses and ferns, partly to the phanerogams.1


Collecting localities:

W. Java (Dec. 1904-May 1905): Buitenzorg, making trips in the environs, to G. Salak etc.; Krakatau (in Sunda Str.) with Th. Valeton (see there) (March 1, 1905); E. Java: G. Ardjoeno (Lalidjiwo), etc.



On G. Salak he discovered Treubia insignis and Ephemeropsis tjibodensis, on the west and the north side, till then found on G. Gedeh only. It seems probable that he collected, at least cryptogams. In Herb. Moscow? [MW].

According to Dammerman1 he made a collection of demonstration material for his lectures.
