Biography

French botanist and explorer from Compiègne, Oise, the son of a pharmacist. He initially trained in medicine but later switched to botany, a student of R.L. Desfontaines and A.H.L. de Jussieu. Boivin joined the Oise Expedition (1846-1852) to the islands of the Indian Ocean as the official botanist. He collected both plants and animals but contracted malaria and, suffering from exhaustion, died the day after his return to France. Plant names which commemorate Boivin include a great many species and the genera Boivinella A. Camus in the Poaceae, Neoboivinella Aubrév. & Pellegr. in the Sapotaceae and Bivinia Jaub. ex Tul. in the Flacourtiaceae. (http://plants.jstor.org/person/bm000000840)
