Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte de Buffon

His works influenced the next two generations of naturalists, including Jean-Baptiste Lamarck and Georges Cuvier. Buffon published thirty-six quarto volumes of his Histoire Naturelleduring his lifetime; with additional volumes based on his notes and further research being published in the two decades following his death.[1]

 

 

Ernst Mayr wrote that "Truly, Buffon was the father of all thought in natural history in the second half of the 18th century".[2]

 

 

Buffon held the position of intendant (director) at the Jardin du Roi, now called the Jardin des Plantes. Source Wikipedia :https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Georges-Louis_Leclerc,_Comte_de_Buffon
