As a doctor he also prepared medicines for his patients by using his extensive knowledge of plants. According to legend Tillandz ("Till lands" means "by land" in Swedish) received his name when, as a student, he travelled by boat from Turku to Stockholm. On the way he became so seasick that he returned by walking around the Gulf of Bothnia, a distance of some 1000 kilometers. A genus of epiphytic plants, Tillandsia, was named after Tillandz by Carl Linnaeus. This botanist is denoted by the author abbreviation Tillandz when citing a botanical name. (en)
