Carl August Julius Milde
Milde specialized in research of cryptogams, particularly mosses and ferns. The botanical genus Mildella from the family Pteridaceae was named in his honor by Vittore Benedetto Antonio Trevisan. In 1876, American botanical artist Charles Edward Faxon (1846-1918) published a translation of Milde's Botrychiorum Monographia. Other written works of his include:
- Die höheren Sporenpflanzen Deutschland's und der Schweiz, (The higher spore plants of Germany and Switzerland), 1865.
- Bryologia silesiaca, (Silesian bryology), 1869.
Milde suffered from respiratory ailments for most of his adult life, and died at the age of 46 in Meran, location of a popular spa that he sometimes visited for treatment.
