Georg August Goldfuss ( 1782 - 1848)

Georg August Goldfuss (1782-1848) Goldfuss was born at Thurnau near Bayreuth and educated at Erlangen where he graduated in 1804 and became professor of zoology in 1818. He was subsequently appointed professor of zoology and mineralogy at the University of Bonn. Aided by Count Georg zu Münster, he issued the important Petrefacta Germaniae (1826–44), a work which was intended to illustrate the invertebrate fossils of Germany, but it was left incomplete after the sponges, corals, crinoids, echinoderms and part of the mollusca had been figured. His greatest work was Naturhistorischer Atlas.
