Who was Nikolai Turczaninow?
Nikolai Stepánovich Turczanínow was a Russian botanist who first identified several genera, and many species of plants. Several species have been named after him, including Connarus turczaninowii, Hydrocotyle turczaninowii, and Sisymbrium turczaninowii.
In 1814, Turczaninow graduated from Kharkov University and went to work as a civil servant in St. Petersburg, where he published his first botanical list in 1825. In 1828 Turczaninov was assigned an administrative post in Irkutsk, Siberia. This allowed him to collect in the Lake Baikal area, and a spate of papers followed.
