Edmund Carroll Jaeger, D.Sc., was an American biologist known for his works on desert ecology. He was born in Loup City, Nebraska to Katherine and John Philip Jaeger, and moved to Riverside, California in 1906 with his family. He was the first to document, in The Condor, a state of extended torpor, approaching hibernation, in a bird, the common poorwill. He also described this in the National Geographic Magazine.
