The Life and Works of Jean-Henri Fabre

Jean-Henri Casimir Fabre (1823-1915) was a French entomologist and author known for the lively style of his popular books on the lives of insects. His Souvenirs Entomologiques is a series of texts on insects and arachnids. He influenced the later writings of Charles Darwin, who called Fabre "an inimitable observer". Fabre, however, was a Christian who remained sceptical about Darwin's theory of evolution, as he always held back from all theories and systems. His special force was exact and detailed observation, field research, always avoiding premature general conclusions from his observations. (from wikipedia.org)
