Raúl Adolfo Ringuelet Ph.D. (September 10, 1914 – April 29, 1982) was an Argentine zoologist. Dr. Ringuelet published more than 100 scientific papers on the ecology, limnology, biogeography, and conservation of South American freshwaters, and was a mentor to a whole generation of Argentine biologists. Dr. Ringuelet's research interests were exceptionally broad, including numerous studies of leeches (Hirudinea), harvestmen spiders (Opiliones), crustaceans, chironomid flies and Neotropical fishes. The UNLP Instituto de Limnología `Dr. Raúl A. Ringuelet` is named in his honor.

The UNLP Instituto de Limnología `Dr. Raúl A. Ringuelet` is named in his honor. Raúl Ringuelet was born in La Plata, September 10, 1914, and graduated in 1939 with a Doctor of Natural Sciences at the Institute of Museum, Universidad Nacional de La Plata (UNLP). Ringuelet published his first scientific work in 1936. Ringuelet went on to publish 17 works of Arachnology, with one relating to the Order Scorpiones and the others to the Order Opiliones, 44 papers on the Hirudinea leeches, 24 on various crustaceans, and 14 specifically on Biogeography. Ringuelet held several professorships at the Universidad Nacional de La Plata: Adjunct professor of general Zoology (1944–1948), Acting Professor (1946–1947) and Head (1947–1955) Invertebrate Zoology, Professor Acting Zoogeography (1958), Vertebrate Zoology Professor (1957–1966), Professor of Ecology and Zoogeography (1960, per vitam in 1972) and Professor of Limnology (1969–1978). He was also Professor of Systematic Zoology in the Faculty of Natural Sciences, University of Buenos Aires (1956–1964). In recognition of his career, the National University of La Plata was appointed Extraordinary Professor Emeritus degree (1980). From 1978 until his death Ringuelet was a Senior Researcher at the National Research Council (CONICET). The following quote (in translation to English) is from a lecture delivered by Dr. Ringuelet on January 8, 1944: And let's say in conclusion, that if we keep our native wildlife, the wisdom is to create a thorough plan to arrive to regulate entirely on which animals should be protected, as soon as possible taking the necessary measures. At the same time measures to study and propose should be followed without appeal and interference. A Commission or Council, or whatever you call it, composed of men skilled in the art and consists of naturalists who are best able to understand these matters, but how the fashion of Hollywood, should be the only inspection body or advisory that could give the definitive word on any proposed introduction of animals as well as parks and reserves. For a distribution or governing body of parks with no naturalist, botanist and zoologist, is like having a health care organization without doctors or bacteriologists or build roads without the help of engineers.
