Based on his discoveries in the United States, upon his return to France, Bosc published three volumes in the vast natural history series, Suites á Buffon, on shells and worms (1801) and on crustaceans (1802). Bosc was named inspector of the gardens of Versailles in 1803 and of the state gardens from 1806. From 1825 he served as professor at the Jardin des Plants in Paris.
