Nachruf für Univ. Prof. Dr. Friedrich Schaller

Mit tiefer Betroffenheit müssen wir das Ableben von Univ. Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Friedrich Schaller bekannt geben, der im 98 Lebensjahr am 5. Mai 2018 in seiner Wohnung in Wien verstorben ist. Er starb in seinem 98. Lebensjahr

Sein unermüdliches Engagement in diesen Jahren bewirkte eine wesentliche fachliche Erweiterung der Zoologie in Wien und war entscheidend für die Errichtung des Biozentrums Althanstraße. Sein wissenschaftliches Werk ist vor allem mit der Entdeckung der indirekten Spermatophorenübertragung bei verschiedenen Boden-Arthropoden und bioakustischer Forschung an tropischen Fröschen und Fischen verbunden.

Mit Schaller verlieren wir eine Person, die in seinem Leben und akademischen Wirken stets von Humanismus und Aufklärung geleitet war. In diesem Sinne ist auch sein großer Einsatz für die Ausbildung der Studierenden des Lehramtsstudiums Biologie zu verstehen.

Luitfried Salvini-Plawen passed away on 22. October 2014, aged 75.

He was professor at the University of Vienna, Faculty of Life Sciences and former Head of the Institute of Zoology. After his retirement in 2004 he stayed active in publishing and teaching. The scientific community has lost an outstanding invertebrate zoologist, his unexpected death leaves a painful gap.

In memoriam Luitfried Salvini-Plawen (1939-2014)

Luitfried Salvini-Plawen was one of the most prominent and influential personalities in malacology during the past decades. His main interest was the early evolution of molluscs and the phylogenetic relationships of the major groups. He was one of the few experts in aplacophoran morphology and systematics and has described about half the number of known species of Solenogastres. His profound expertise resulted in intense international cooperations with, e.g., Spanish, Norwegian, and Japanese colleagues and institutions. Since the 1980s, Luitfried Salvini-Plawen and his students played a major role in revolutionising and modernising gastropod systematics and the understanding of their evolutionary history. The key to success was the integrating results from various fields such as electron microscopy and developmental biology in a broad comparative approach using phylogenetic methods.

Luitfried Salvini-Plawen´s biological field of action, however, extended beyond molluscs. He considered Rupert Riedl and Erich Reisinger most influential during his early career – both directed him to and familiarised him with the marine interstitial fauna. Not surprisingly, he worked on the interstitial Solenogastres, acochlidian and philinoglossid opisthobranchs, but also on the systematics and development of cnidarians, kamptozoans and holothurians. His broad overviews on the convergent evolution of eyes and coelomic cavities in animals received much attention and have sparked renewed research efforts in the respective fields. The former was achieved together with Ernst Mayr who had invited him as guest professor to Havard University in 1975. His research is published in about 150 papers.

In his spare time, Luitfried graduated in History, with special focus on medieval history of northern Italy and Southern Tyrol, a region he felt deeply rooted in. His knowledge in cultural history and languages was impressive and, being an educated singer, his love for music was profound.

The scientific community has lost an outstanding zoologist, his unexpected death leaves a painful gap. He will, however, remain an inspirational example of intellectual acuteness and scientific conduct.
