Frans Reinhold Kjellman

Frans Reinhold Kjellman (4 November 1846 – 22 April 1907) was a Swedish botanist who specialized in marine phycology and is known in particular for his work on Arctic algae.

Kjellman became a Ph.D. and docent of botany at the University of Uppsala in 1872, taught at the Fjellstedt School in Uppsala 1872-78, and was appointed professor extraordinary at the University 1883. He was acting professor of botany 1893-1897 and briefly in 1899, before being appointed to the Borgströmian Professorship of Botany and Practical Economy in December 1899.

He participated in several Arctic expeditions and was the botanist under Adolf Erik Nordenskiöld in 1878 aboard the S/S Vega, the first ship to sale the Northeast passage. From this and other Arctic expeditions, Kjellman wrote an important early work on the marine algae of the Arctic, "The Algae of the Arctic Sea: A survey of the species, together with an exposition of the general characters and the development of the flora".
