A naturalist and collector, he came to Australia aboard La Recherche on a voyage to the Pacific with L'Espérance in 1791.

sketcher, naturalist and collector, was born of a middle-class provincial family in Alençon, Normandy on 23 October 1755. In 1791 he renounced his family name, Houtou, and adopted Labillardière as his sole surname. He studied botany and medicine at Montpellier, completing his studies and graduating as a doctor of medicine in Paris about 1780. After working at the Jardin du Roi with his friend Desfontaines and their patron Le Monnier, Labillardière was sent to England for two years in 1782 to study the plant collections in Kew Gardens. There he met Sir Joseph Banks. Afterwards he collected in the Alps and the Mediterranean, then made a botanical voyage to the Levant in 1786-88 which resulted in the publication of his Icones Plantarum Syriae Rariorum Discriptionibus et Observationibus Illustratae (Paris 1791-94). Labillardière was appointed naturalist aboard La Recherche , taking part in Admiral Bruni d’Entrecasteaux’s voyage to the Pacific with L’Esp é rance in 1791-94 in search of the explorer La Pérouse. They spent a month charting the coast of Van Diemen’s Land in 1792. On 6 May Labillardière first saw the blue eucalyptus ( Eucalyptus globulus ) subsequently to prove highly adaptable to European conditions when the seeds he had collected were planted in the Empress Josephine’s Malmaison gardens in 1804. Other new eucalyptus species and a little kangaroo, Thylogale billardierii (the Tasmanian pademelon), were also collected on this first visit ...
