Abstract

L'auteur, après quelques rappels biographiques et historiques nécessaires, revient sur l'expédition que le naturaliste Michel Adanson (1727-1806) entreprit au Sénégal de 1749 à 1754. Un bilan général de ce voyage, en termes de découvertes dans les sciences de la nature, est donné. Un bref regard est enfin porté sur les problèmes de la colonisation du Sénégal et la question de l'esclavage au milieu du XVIII e siècle, à travers le témoignage du jeune Adanson. After a necessary biographical and historical survey, the author analyzes the expedition that the naturalist Michel Adanson (1727-1806) undertook in Senegal from 1749 to 1754. A general report concerning his scientific discoveries in natural sciences is given as well as a brief overview of the issue of slavery during colonization at that time.
