French botanist and phycologist known for his investigations of Phaeophyceae, being a taxonomic authority of numerous brown algae species. In 1926 he described the order Sporochnales. His name is lent to the mycological genus Sauvageautia (Har., 1892) as well as to the algae genus Sauvageaugloia (Hamel ex Kylin, 1940).

Sauvageau studied at the University of Montpellier, receiving his degree in natural sciences in 1884. Afterwards he served as an assistant to Charles Flahault (1884–88) in Montpellier and to Philippe Van Tieghem (1885–91) in Paris. In 1891 he received his doctorate in Paris with the thesis "Sur les feuilles de quelques Monocotylédones aquatiques" (On the leaves of some aquatic monocots). In 1892 he attained a professorship at the University of Lyon, later serving as a professor of botany at the Faculty of Sciences of Bordeaux (1901–32).

The French Academy of Sciences awarded him the Prix Montagne for 1904. He died on 5 August 1936, aged 75.
