Charles Gaudichaud-Beaupré

Charles Gaudichaud-Beaupré (September 4, 1789 – January 16, 1854) was a French botanist.

He was born in Angoulême, the son of J-J. Gaudichaud and Rose (Mallat) Gaudichaud. He studied pharmacology at Cognac and Angoulême. He also studied chemistry and herbology.

His greatest claim to fame was serving as botanist on a circumglobal expedition from 1817 to 1820. He accompanied Freycinet, who made the expedition on the ships Uranie and Physicienne. He is known for his collections in Australia.

In 1831 Gaudichaud sailed on L'Herminie to South America, visiting Chile, Brazil and Peru. In 1836 he undertook a third voyage, circumnavigating the globe on La Bonite.

He died in Paris.
