Daguerreotype of Adrien-Henri de Jussieu, 1851

Adrien-Henri de Jussieu (23 December 1797 – 29 June 1853) was a French botanist.[1]

Born in plants. He was also president of the French Academy of Sciences.

His main publications were the Cours élémentaire de botanique (Paris) and the Géographie botanique (Paris, 1846), as well as several monographs, most notably the one on the family Malpighiaceae.[3] In botanical references he is usually abbreviated as Adr. Juss., also sometimes as A. Juss., as his father already has the abbreviation Juss.

The asteroid 9470 Jussieu was named in honor of the de Jussieu family.
