Fabre undertook some important research on insects and wrote many books on the subject. He was primarily self-taught and worked as a teacher at a number of French schools including Carpentras and Avignon and spent 8 years on Corsica teaching at the lycee of Ajaccio. He is credited with discovering alizarin, a useful biological stain, which he isolated from the madder plant in 1866.
