(Redirected from Jean-Henri Fabre
Jean-Henri Casimir Fabre (December 22, 1823 - October 11, 1915) was a French entomologist and author.
Fabre was an exceptionally bright child, advancing through school at early ages. He had acquired a primary teaching certificate at the young age of 19.
Fabre went on to accomplish many scholarly achievements. He was a teacher, physicist, and botanist. However, he is probably best known for his findings in the field of entomology, the study of insects, and is considered by many to be the father of modern entomology. He wrote a series of texts on the subject over his life, collectively known as the Souvenirs Entomologiques. Fabre's influence is felt in the later works of fellow naturalist Charles Darwin.
Jean-Henri Fabre's last home and office, the "Harmas de Sérignan" in Provence, France, stands today as a museum devoted to his works.
