Johann Friedrich Gmelin
See also: Gmelin
Gmelin is professor of Médecine to Tübingen in 1772, the following year he also takes the pulpit of Philosophie and of medicine with Göttingen and, in 1775, he holds the pulpit of Chimie, Botanique and Minéralogie.
Gmelin is not, strictly speaking, a zoologist. It publishes especially work of chemistry but it supervises, between 1788 and 1793, the 13th edition of the Systema Naturae of Carl von Linné which it enriches by many additions or modifications. This is why its name often appears after the Latin name.
It belongs to a dynasty of scientists where several are found Naturaliste S. He is thus the father of the chemist Leopold Gmelin. He is the nephew of Johann Georg Gmelin (1709-1755), explorer, chemist and botanist.
