Johann Gotthelf Fischer von Waldheim, in Russian: Grigory Ivanovich Fiser von Waldgejm (Григорий Иванович Фишер фон Вальдгейм) (October 13, 1771 - October 18, 1853) German anatomist, entomologist and paleontologist. In zoological works, the abbreviation is called “Fischer de Waldheim.”, Fischer von Waldheim, G. Fischer, or Fischer alone. Life and work Fischer Gotthilf was born Fischer in Waldheim, Saxony. Fischer was the son of a linen maker. He studied medicine in Leipzig. He traveled with his friend Alexander von Humboldt to Vienna and Paris, where he studied under Georges Cuvier. He worked as a teacher in Mainz, then in 1804 he was invited to Moscow State University, where he became a senior professor in the Department of Natural History, along with the director of the Natural History Museum donated to the university by Pavel Gyemidov. In August 1805, he established a scientific organization called the Tsarist Moscow Society of Naturalists. Fischer's main occupation was the taxonomic classification of invertebrates, which is why he composed his work "Entomographia Imperii Rossici" between 1820-1851. He spent most of his time studying fossils found around Moscow. Out of gratitude for systematizing Russia’s insects, the Russian government gave Gotthilf Fischer a noble rank, as well as the right to have “von Waldheim” at the end of its name.
