Jean Baptiste Christophore Fusée Aublet
JEAN BAPTISTE CHRISTOPHORE FUSéE AUBLET (November 4, 1720 – May 6, 1778) was a French pharmacist , botanist and explorer . Born in Salon-de-Provence , he joined the French East India Company and in 1752 was sent to Mauritius (then known as l'Île de France) to establish a pharmacy and a botanical garden . He worked there for nine years. During this time he was accused of having destroyed plants from the collection of Pierre Poivre , being jealous of the latter's success. In 1762 he was sent to Cayenne in French Guiana , where he assembled a vast herbarium which allowed him to prepare his Histoire des plantes de la Guiane françoise, published in 1775 and including almost 400 copperplate engravings . When Fusée Aublet died at Paris in 1778, he left his herbarium to Jean-Jacques Rousseau , though the latter possessed it for only two months before he too died. It was eventually acquired by the Muséum national d\'Histoire naturelle in 1953

Taxonomy (biology)
TAXONOMY (from Ancient Greek τάξις (taxis ), meaning 'arrangement', and -νομία (-nomia), meaning 'method ') is the science of defining and naming groups of biological organisms on the basis of shared characteristics. Organisms are grouped together into taxa (singular: taxon) and these groups are given a taxonomic rank ; groups of a given rank can be aggregated to form a super-group of higher rank, thus creating a taxonomic hierarchy. The principal ranks in modern use are domain , kingdom , phylum (division is sometimes used in botany in place of phylum), class , order , family , genus and species . The Swedish botanist Carl Linnaeus
Carl Linnaeus
is regarded as the father of taxonomy, as he developed a system known as Linnaean taxonomy for categorization of organisms and binomial nomenclature for naming organisms
