Over 6 years, Pallas visited the Caspian, the Altai Mountains, Tomsk, the Yenisei, Tobolsk, Lake Baikal, Kolyvan, and the frontiers of China. The results of his explorations and scientific investigations were of the greatest significance for botany, zoology, geology, geography, and ethnology. The narrative of Pallas's travels was first published in German at St. Petersburg in 1771-76, but the French edition incorporates the natural history results of the expedition.
