overviewMaurice Maindron (February 7, 1857, Paris - July 19, 1911) was a French entomologist.
Maurice Maindron was the son of engineer and sculptor Hippolyte Maindron. In 1875, already a keen naturalist and entomologist, he joined the Laboratory of the Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle, where Philippe Alexandre Jules Künckel d'Herculais presented it to Émile Blanchard, and there he was hired to organize the Hymenoptera in museum collections.
Before the age of 20, he sailed to New Guinea (1876-1877) with Achille Rafray. He joined the Société entomologique de France in 1878 and embarked on a series of missions in 1879 that led to Senegal (1879), India (1880-). 1881), to Indonesia (1884-1885), to Obock and Somalia (1893). Gathered in Pakistan and Saudi Arabia in 1896, and won in India (1900-1901) and again in Senegal (1904).
Many of these missions were, at least in part, funded by the Museum and materials added to collections. Other examples were sold to collectors and dealers.
Maindron is referred to by the scientific name of a lizard species, Sphenomorphus maindroni.
Archaeologist, naturalist, novelist.
He loves insects and participates in research trips to Africa, Oceania and India. I deal with the weapons of the ancients behind the beetles. Announced in 1906, the "Tree of Science" is a modern piece of writing about the experiences of museum assistants and was part of the corruption of the scholarly world. Also, as a novelist, he presents works notable for evoking French traditions during the Prefectural dynasty, the era of religious warfare, and the strict accuracy of teaching. Major works include "Butterflies" (1887), "Weapons" (1890), "Voprasan's Equestrian Game" (1895), "Blancia Blessed Blessed" (1901), "Vellag's Man" '11) etc.
