Jean-Baptiste Lamarck (1744-1829) was a French soldier and naturalist who supported the idea of evolution. He had an interest in botany and was later appointed as a professor of zoology at the Muséum National D’Histoire Naturelle. Lamarck published major works on invertebrates, a term he invented, and was one of the first to use the term biology. His work on invertebrates included beautiful illustrations of shells drawn by Redoute.
