Abstract

Gerhard Pretzmann passed away on 20 January 2013 in Vienna, Austria at the age of 83. For several decades, he worked in the Crustacea collection at the Naturhistorisches Museum in Vienna (NHMW); and over a 40 year career, published over 100 papers, mainly on the systematics of Decapoda. Gerhard Pretzmann was born on 8 September 1929 in Vienna. Between 1935 and 1939, he was in primary school in the third district of Vienna, and in 1939 joined secondary school in the second district of Vienna. He finished with the “Matura” (university entrance diploma) in 1948. He then started his study at the University of Vienna with zoology as his major and palaeontology as a minor subject. His thesis on the social behaviour of freshwater fish was finished in 1957, and he received his Ph.D. on 31 May 1958. Between November 1958 and August 1962, he received several stipends to work at the NHMW.
