French biologist who specialised in parasitic protozoans and marine invertebrates. He also worked on insects. His research of Siboglinum weberi was to become the foundation for establishing the family of beard worms known today as Siboglinidae. Also, he investigated how the various biological aspects of tunicates and annelids impacted their evolution.
He began as a lecturer in zoology at Lyon in 1897. From 1901 to 1903 he was a lecturer at the faculty of sciences in Marseille, and from 1903 to 1909, taught classes at the Sorbonne (laboratory of évolution des êtres organisés). In 1909 he succeeded Alfred Mathieu Giard (1846-1908) as director of the zoological station in Wimereux. In 1923 he opened a new laboratory of évolution des êtres organisés on Boulevard Raspail in Paris.
In 1915 he was elected president of the Société zoologique de France, and later on in his career, he served as president of the Académie des Sciences (1945) and the Société de biologie (1946).
His books include Le Parasitime et la symbiosis (1922), Le problems de l'Evolution (1931) and Organisme et sexualité (1942).
He died in Paris on 13 July 1958, aged 89.
