Edward O. Wilson
E.O. Wilson was a life-long explorer of the natural world whose pioneering studies of ants have led to revolutionary insights across a wide range of fields, from evolution to animal and human behavior. A founding father of the environmental movement, Wilson taught us to understand, protect, and celebrate the earth and greatly influenced the way scientists and nonscientists view the interwoven complexity and diversity of our planet. Wilson was a two-time Pulitzer Prize winner for General Non-Fiction and a winner of the National Medal of Science. He was Pellegrino University Research Professor Emeritus and Honorary Curator in Entomology at Harvard University.
