French botanist and geologist known for his travels in India. After being invited by the Jardin des Plantes to collect plant and animal specimens from a country of his choice, Jacquemont travelled to India in 1828, and remained there for the rest of his life. He visited Amber in Rajputana, met with the Sikh Emperor Ranjit Singh at his capital of Lahore, and visited the kingdom of Ladakh in the Himalaya. He also visited Bardhaman (Burdwan) in Bengal in November 1829. He died of cholera in Bombay (Mumbai) on 8 December 1832 at age 31.
Several plants are named for him, including Acacia jacquemontii, the Himalayan White Birch (Betula jacquemontii), the Indian Tree Hazel (Corylus jacquemontii), Afghan Cherry (Prunus jacquemontii), and the cobra lily or Jack in the pulpit (Arisaema jacquemontii).
