Johan Adam Pollich or Johann (1 January 1741, Kaiserslautern – 24 February 1780) was a German doctor, botanist and entomologist.

He studied medicine in Strasbourg, and following graduation he practiced medicine for a short period of time. From 1764 onward he devoted his energies to natural sciences. In 1776 he published the first volume of Historia plantarum in Palatinatu, followed by volumes II & III the next year. Because of its excellent descriptions of plants, this work was highly praised by Pollich's contemporaries.[1]
