In 1871 he obtained his doctorate from the University of Leipzig, later receiving his habilitation at the University of Jena, where in 1879 he became an associate professor.[2] In 1904-05 he conducted scientific research in Java, publishing Botanische and landwirtschaftliche Studien auf Java (Botanical and agricultural studies on Java, 1907) as a result.[3] In 1923, he was appointed professor of soil science, plant and seed physiology at Jena.[1]
