Jean Henri Fabre

French entomologist Jean Henri Fabre (1823-1915) is considered the father of modern entomology and was hailed by Victor Hugo as "as incomparable observer." Chiefly self-educated, he devoted most of his life to the observation of insects as they hunted, mated, built nests, and guarded their young. His lively, poetic style has attracted a wide audience of readers.
