Pierre Richer de Belleval 1564 – November 17, 1632, was a French botanist. He is considered the father of scientific botany.
Richer de Belleval published a catalog of the garden in 1598 and a French treatise in 1605, recommending an inquiry into the native plants of Languedoc. This last was accompanied by five plates, intended as a specimen of a future work, for which he subsequently prepared a number of engravings, rude and stiff in execution but exhibiting many rare species. He did not live to publish these and the plates remained neglected in the bands of his family. The plates were finally published much later, in 1796 after Gilibert obtained the plates. The pamphlets were republished in 1785 by Broussonet.
The genus Bellevalia Lapeyr., in the family Asparagaceae, is named in honour of him.
Minor paper fault to one engraving.
