LHERMINIER, Felix Louis (lair'-meen'-yay'), French naturalist, born in Paris, 18 May, 1779; died there in October, 1833. After studying under the ablest professors of chemistry and natural history in Paris, he went to the island of Guadeloupe in 1795, where he devoted himself to his favorite sciences, making a thorough investigation of the varieties of plants and of the mineral and entomological productions of the country. He was compelled to leave Guadeloupe in consequence of the troubles that ensued on the change of government in 1815, came to South Carolina, and afterward went to the island of St. Bartholomew. When peace was restored he resumed his scientific pursuits in Guadeloupe till 1829, when he returned to France. His works are "Recherches sur l'appareil sternal des oiseaux, considere sous le double rapport de l'osteologie et la myologie, suivies d'un essai sur la distribution de cette classe de vertebres" (Paris, 1827); "Memoire sur le guacharo de la caverne deCaripe"; and "Recherches anatomiques sur que! ques oiseaux rares ou peu connus darts leur organisation profonde." The last two appeared in the "Annales du museum d'histoire naturelle" (Paris).
