Theoretical Biology

The Estonian school of theoretical biology as a tradition of holistic, developmental and constructivist ideas in general biology goes back to Karl Friedrich Burdach, one who coined the term biology in 1800, and his pupil, a greatest biologist of the 19th century Karl Ernst von Baer. Among their followers can be named Gustav Teichmüller, Gustav von Bunge, Jakob von Uexküll, Evald Oldekop and many others. Since 1974, the Theoretical Biology Group in Tartu has been a meeting place for the researchers in theoretical biology of all its different approaches.
