Jonas Axel Boeck

Jonas Axel Boeck (May 16, 1833 Aker-April 5, 1873) was a Norwegian marine biologist.

Boeck was born into a family of pharmacists and he initially trained in pharmacy. However, his strong interest in natural sciences led him to attend the University of Christiania (now the University of Oslo) and study zoology. He then served as a curator at the Bergen Museum and was appointed the museum's director in 1863.

Boeck was primarily interested in marine invertebrates and he made several important contributions to the field. He described many new species, especially of polychaete worms, and his taxonomic work is still considered valuable today. He also conducted extensive research on fish parasites, including the notorious fish louse. His book "Norske Nordhavs-Expeditions Fiske" (The Norwegian North-Atlantic Expedition's Fish) is considered a landmark in the study of fish biology.

Boeck was an active member of the Royal Norwegian Society of Sciences and Letters and was awarded its Gold Medal for his contributions to natural history. He also served as a member of the Norwegian parliament for a short time. Boeck died at the young age of 39 from complications related to tuberculosis.
