André Michaux
André Michaux, also styled Andrew Michaud, (8 March 1746 – 13 November 1802)[1] was a French botanist and explorer. He is most noted for his study of North American flora. In addition Michaux collected specimens in England, Spain, France, and even, Persia. His work was part of a larger European effort to gather knowledge about the natural world. Michaux's contributions included Histoire des chênes de l'Amérique (1801; "The Oaks of North America") and Flora Boreali-Americana (1803; "The Flora of North America") which continued to be botanical references well into the 19th century. His son, François André Michaux, also became an authoritative botanist.[2]Contents1 Biography 2 Legacy 3 See also 4 Notes 5 References 6 External linksBiography[edit]Historical marker, located off Aviation Ave in the City of North CharlestonMichaux was born in Satory, part of Versailles, Yvelines, where his father managed farmland on the king's estate
