Jean-Baptiste Lamarck : works and heritage

Biography of Lamarck

This section of the Lamarck Site contains documents and testimonies concerning the life of the french scientist. Texts which, on some points of Lamarck's life, sometimes constituted the only information source, as for example the ambiguous funeral oration pronounced by Georges Cuvier or the anecdotes printed by Isidore Bourdon, who declares that he received them from Lamarck himself, at the end of his life.
