E.O. Wilson, naturalist, scientist and outspoken advocate of conservation
I met Dr. Wilson a couple years ago after hearing him speak to nature lovers of all ages at the Long Beach Aquarium. What stood out to me was his encouragement of humble, personal exploration of nature at your fingertips. As I learned more about this extraordinary scientist and communciator, I learned that his specialty is ants. Ants.
How in the world does a man interesed in ants become one of the world's leading naturalists? His story says it all.
Edward Wilson as Researcher and Creative ThinkerEdward Osborne Wilson was born in 1929 in Birmingham, Alabama (USA). He is a distinguished biologist (entomology), a seminal researcher (sociobiology) and provocative theorist (consilience, biophilia), a passionate naturalist (conservationism, biodiversity), and a prominent man of letters.
Edward Wilson as ScientistWilson is highly regarded for his soundness and equanimity as a scientist; his creativity and moral courage as an advocate for environmentalism; and his sage and sympathetic understanding as a scientific humanist concerned with religious, moral, and ethical matters. He is currently the Pellegrino Research Professor in Entomology for the Department of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology at Harvard University.
Edward Wilson as a Little Boy Grown Up!Wilson's specialty is ants. He discovered the love of tiny insects as a child lying on the ground and watching their behaviors.
This passion for nature led to making him famous for starting the sociobiology debate, one of the greatest scientific controversies of the late 20th century, when he suggested in his Sociobiology: The New Synthesis (1975) that animal (and by extension human) behavior can be studied using an evolutionary framework. He is also credited with bringing the term biodiversity to the public.
