Edmond Perrier


French zoologist known for his studies of invertebrates (annelids and echinoderms). Perrier was deeply interested in the evolutionary theories of Charles Darwin and Jean-Baptiste Lamarck. In 1909 he was speaker at the inauguration of Lamarck's monument at the Muséum national d'histoire naturelle. He believed Lamarck to be the true founder in regards to the theory of evolution.

He was the brother of zoologist Rémy Perrier (1861–1936). He died in Paris on 31 July 1921, aged 77.
