Naturalist; born in 1820 in Becancour, Quebec, Canada; died in 1892 at Cap Rouge. Ordained at Nicolet, 1844; he utilized his deep interest in nature in the study of Canadian flora and fauna, thus winning by his extensive pioneer work the appellation of "Father of Natural History in Canada." In 1868 he founded the Naturaliste Canadien, which he edited for 20 years. Among his writings are Flore du Canada, and Le Verger Canadien.
