Milne-Edwards, Henri (1800-85), zoologist, was born at Bruges of English parents. After graduating in medicine at Paris he for some time practised as a physician, but subsequently devoted himself exclusively to zoology. He was appointed professor of entomology at the Jardin des Plantes in 1841, and professor of physiology and zoology in 1844. His researches in the lower forms of animal life contributed greatly to the progress of zoology. His chief work was Lecons sur la Physiologic et VAnatomic Comparie (1857-81).
