Jean-François Séguier

Jean-François Séguier (; 25 November 1703 – 1 September 1784) was a French archaeologist, epigraphist, astronomer and botanist from Nîmes.

He studied law in Montpellier, during which time, he developed a passion for botany. He was a friend and collaborator to Scipio Maffei, with whom he took an extended scientific tour throughout Europe (1732–36). In 1755 he became a member of the Académie de Nîmes, serving as its ''secrétaire perpétuel'' from 1765 to 1784. In 1772 he became a member of the Académie royale des Inscriptions et Belles-Lettres.

The plant genus ''Seguieria'' (family Petiveriaceae) commemorates his name, as do the botanical species ''Ranunculus seguieri'' (Vill., 1779) and ''Euphorbia seguieriana'' (Neck., 1770). Provided by Wikipedia
