Henri Lecoq

Henri Lecoq (18 April 1802 – 4 August 1871) was a French botanist. Charles Darwin mentioned this name in 1859 in the preface of his famous book On The Origin of Species as a believer in the modification of species. Darwin wrote:

The work referenced by Darwin is Lecoq's "Étude de la Géographie Botanique de l’Europe", published in 1854.

A number of plants carry the name of Lecoq in their descriptive names (see [http://www.ipni.org/ipni/advPlantNameSearch.do?find_includePublicationAuthors=on&find_includePublicationAuthors=off&find_includeBasionymAuthors=on&find_includeBasionymAuthors=off&find_rankToReturn=all&output_format=normal&find_authorAbbrev=Lecoq IPNI search]). In addition a museum in his home town of Clermont Ferrand (France) is named after him.
