Between 1767 and 1810, the activities of Peter Simon Pallas at the Academy of St. Petersburg were concentrated on the realization of two extensive exploring expeditions, comprehensive researches and their utilization in the form of numerous monographs. Moreover, Pallas considerably contributes to the German-Russian scientific relations in the last quarter of the 18th century by publishing the "Neue Nordische Beyträge", by collaborating to Bacmeister's "Russische Bibliothek", by collaborating in and joining on to the German Periodicals, and by having intense scientific relations with learned contemporaries and societies. Pallas serves as an example that the way of information passes from Petersburg (writing and dispatching of the manuscripts) to Leipzig (place of printing and forwarding), and that from their informations were distributed to several main lines. By this global theory of mountain building (1777) Pallas considerably contributes of the formation of geology as an independent scientific discipline. (HL).
