Louis Augustin Guillaume Bosc - Legacy


Bosc's legacy lies mainly in the fields of agronomy and natural history. He was the author of three volumes of Suites à Buffon, edited by René Richard Louis Castel: Histoire naturelle des Coquilles, contenant leur description, les mœurs des animaux qui les habitent et leurs usages (Paris, 5 volumes, 1801); Histoire naturelle des Vers (Paris, 2 volumes, 1801); and Histoire naturelle des Crustacés (Paris, 3 volumes, 1802).

Bosc participated in the editing of the Nouveau Dictionnaire d'histoire naturelle appliquée aux arts, principalement à l'agriculture, à l'économie rurale et domestique, under the direction of Jean-François-Pierre Deterville and Sonnini de Manoncourt (Paris, 24 volumes, 1803–1804, re-edited in 36 volumes, 1816–1819), and the Nouveau Cours complet d'agriculture théorique et pratique, also directed by Deterville (Paris, 13 volumes, 1809, re-edited in 16 volumes, 1821–1823). Bosc also supervised the editing of Théâtre d'agriculture by Olivier de Serres, published by the Société centrale d'agriculture de Paris, whose Annales he also published.

Bosc's grave lies in a little cemetery in the forest of Montmorency, a National Forest open to the public, in the commune of Saint-Prix in the Val-d'Oise.

Bosc's insect collection is shared between the Natural History Museum of Geneva, Muséum national d'histoire naturelle in Paris, and the Natural History Museum in London (Louis Alexandre Auguste Chevrolat collection).

The standard author abbreviation Bosc is used to indicate this individual as the author when citing a botanical name.
