Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Th odore Lacordaire or Jean Th odore Lacordaire (1 February 1801, Recey-sur-Ource, C te-d'Or - 18 July 1870, Liege) was a Belgian entomologist of French extraction. In spite of his obvious interest in natural history, his family sent him to Le Havre to study "le droit," or the law. In 1824, he embarked for Buenos Aires where he became a commercial salesman. He traveled widely in South America using every opportunity to carry out many observations on local fauna. Georges Cuvier suggested he come to Paris in 1830. There he met Pierre Andr Latreille, Jean Victoire Audouin, and Andr Marie Constant Dum ril and took part in the foundation of the Soci t Entomologique de France. He went to Guyana at the end of 1830 to collect natural history specimens, returning to France in 1832.show more
