ALEXANDER VON HUMBOLDT (14 September 1769 – 6 May 1859)
German polymath, geographer, naturalist, explorer, and proponent of Romantic philosophy and science.

SCIENTIFIC PIONEER!

Humboldt's quantitative work on botanical geography laid the foundation for the field of biogeography.
Humboldt's advocacy of long-term systematic geophysical measurement laid the foundation for modern geomagnetic and meteorological monitoring.

SCIENTIFIC EXPLORER OF THE AMERICAS!

Between 1799 and 1804, Humboldt travelled extensively in the Americas, exploring and describing them for the first time from a modern Western scientific point of view.
His description of the journey was written up and published in several volumes over 21 years.

FIRST TO RECOGNIZE MAN MADE CLIMATE CHANGE!

He was the first person to describe the phenomenon and cause of human-induced climate change and its consequences on nature and human life!
This already in 1800 and again in 1831, based on observations generated during his travels.
