Huber, Francois (1750-1831), a Swiss naturalist, whose special subject was the honey-bee, was born at Geneva. Early study led to disease of the eyes which resulted in blindness, and his minute observations upon the habits and history of bees were carried on through the devoted and systematic labours of his wife and a servant. His Nouvelles Observations sur les Abcilles has been translated into English. He also wrote other papers on kindred subjects, and his taste for natural history was handed on to his son.
