Peter Simon Pallas (Berlin 1741-1811) studied medicine and natural history in Germany, Holland, and England. In 1767 he went to St Petersburg and began to conduct research in Russia. He was an eminent botanist, zoologist and geographer, and “sought to advance from merely describing nature to finding the causal interrelationships and hidden regularities of natural phenomena.” Darwin acknowledged his work to have been influential in the development of evolutionary ideas (DSB). In the years 1768 to 1774 Pallas joined so-called “academic expeditions” which traversed the Russian Empire from West to East and explored the Zhiguli Mountains and the Southern Urals, the steppes of Western Siberia and the Altay, Lake Baikal, and the mountains of Transbaikalia. He studied flora and fauna, landscape, geological condition, local population and culture.

Mostly engraved by Pierre francois Tardieu.
