Michel Luc

Michel Luc (7 February 1927 – 18 January 2010) was a French zoologist (nematologist) and one of the founding father of the field of plant-nematology. He spent his career with ORSTOM (''Office de la Recherche Scientifique et Technique Outre-Mer''), now IRD (''Institut de recherche pour le développement''). He created the first French nematology laboratory in the ORSTOM research station of Adiopodoumé, near Abidjan (Ivory Coast) in 1955, and a second nematology lab at Dakar Bel-Air (Senegal) in 1969. In 1978, he launched the ''Revue de Nématologie'' (soon renamed ''Fundamental and Applied Nematology'') that fused with ''Nematologica'' in 1999 to become ''Nematology'', currently the leading nematology journal in the field. He was a world-renowned authority on nematode taxonomy. Provided by Wikipedia
