French mammalologist, ornithologist and carcinologist, whose study of fossils led to the discovery of tropical birds such as trogons and parrots from prehistoric France.
He was English in origin, the son of Henri Milne-Edwards and grandson of Bryan Edwards, a Jamaican planter who settled at Bruges (then in France).
Milne-Edwards obtained a medical degree in 1859 and became assistant to his father at the Jardin des Plantes in 1876. He became the director the Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle in 1891, devoting himself especially to fossil birds and deep-sea exploration. In 1881, he undertook a survey of the Gulf of Gascony with Léopold de Folin and worked aboard the Travailleur and the Talisman on trips to the Canary Islands, the Cape Verde Islands and the Azores. For this he received a gold medal of the Royal Geographical Society.
He died on 21 April 1900 in Paris, aged 64.
