Renowned for only the last five years of his generally impoverished life (1823-1915), J. Henri Fabre is nonetheless recognized as one of the most respected and beloved entomologists in the world. He devoted his life to the study of insects and carefully (and beautifully) described his findings in book after book. Fabre was eighty-four when the last of the ten volumes of his magnum opus appeared—Souvenirs Entomologiques. He was suddenly discovered by such eminent literary figures as Maurice Maeterlinck, Edmund Rostand and Roman Rolland. Scientific societies in London, Brussels, Stockholm, Geneva and St. Petersburg elected him to membership. The French government gave him an annual pension. All students of insect behavior, of comparative psychology, of experimental biology are indebted to him.
