ABSTRACT
Fabre, Jean Henri (1823�1915), a French naturalist and author. Living in seclusion from 1879 until his death, Fabre devoted himself to the study of the life history, habits, and instincts of insects. His nontechnical books on insects are greatly admired for their beauty of expression. Charles Darwin said that he �thought like a philosopher and wrote like a poet.�
