There are several biologists in the world who have made tremendous contributions to the field of biological sciences. Below are some biologists who were born outside of the United States who are famous for their work.

• Ivan Pavlov was a Russian physicist well known for his studies on the digestive system and the circulation of the blood. Pavlov was also renowned in the field of psychology for his research on operant conditioning. The study of 'Pavlov's Dogs' is still studied today. He discovered that dog's salivated when they saw food, and so trained them to become accustomed to hearing the sound of a bell when there was found. Eventually, he had trained them to salivate at the sound of a bell ringing, even when there was no food. This research also had an influence on popular culture as the phrase 'Pavlov's Dog' is now used to talk about someone who reacts without thinking critically.
• Hans Adolf Krebs was a German biochemist and Doctor. His most famous discoveries are the citric acid cycle and the urea cycle, which are not considered to be two of the most important metabolic cycles that our body undergoes. The citric acid cycle is also known as the Krebs Cycle which is the name commonly used in schools shows the steps of metabolic chemical reactions that occur and allow cells to produce energy. This discovery won him the Nobel Prize in 1953.
• Carl Linnaeus, also known as Carl von Linné, was a zoologists, botanist and physician originally from Sweden. Not only did he write the basics for modern binomial nomenclature, he is also considered to be the founding father of the modern method of taxonomy, which refers to the system of naming new species. His book 'Systema Naturae' is his most famous work.
