He was Professor (1928-1964) and Dean of the Faculty of Science (1945-1947) at the Free University of Brussels, a prominent Neo-Lamarckian biologist, and a recognized zoologist who had the opportunity to study wildlife for four months at the depression of the Upemba (in the Belgian Congo, later Democratic Republic of the Congo).

He died in Watermael-Boitsfort on 19 February 1975, aged 80. A foundation that bears his name rewards deserving students in zoology at the Free University of Brussels.
