Jean-Henri Fabre (1823-1915) was a French naturalist, entomologist, and author. He is best known for his observations of living insects and is considered by many to be the father of modern entomology. Fabre combines what he calls 'my passion for scientific truth' with accurate observations and an engaging style of writing, which has contributed to the lasting popularity of his work. [26851]
