Karel Kavina

Karel Kavina (September 4, 1890 – January 21, 1948, both in Prague) was a Czech botanist.

Kavina was professor of botany at the Technical University in Prague. He worked on systemics, plant morphology and anatomy, and bryology. He published several atlases and monographs and was editor-in-chief of two botanical journals.

In 1938, botanist Albert Pilát published ''Kavinia'', which is a genus of fungi in the Lentariaceae family. The genus contains five species, and has a largely European distribution. It was named in Kavina's honour.
