Belon's image of the precocious discoverer of taxonomy and comparative anatomy has hardly been corrected since the end of the last century. The apparently scientific, botanical, zoological content of the French scholar's literary production could explain this anachronistic view. The fact that Belon was strongly criticized by his contemporaries could be a second reason. The author has tried to give a more historical and epistemological reading of Belon's works, depicting the real background of their composition, the link between Belon's works and contemporary perception of nature .
