Edward O. Wilson
Museum of Comparative Zoology Faculty, Emeritus and Pellegrino University Professor, Emeritus, Harvard University

Edward O. Wilson is one of the world’s leading voices for conservation of global biodiversity and one of the most influential and accomplished biologists of the last half-century. He is known for his groundbreaking research on the biology and behavior of ants, as well as his celebrated work in such broad fields as island biogeography, sociobiology, and conservation biology. He is the author of two Pulitzer Prize-winning books, On Human Nature (1978) and The Ants (1990, with Bert Hölldobler), as well as the recipient of many fellowships, honors, and awards.

Wilson’s John M. Prather Lectures in Biology encapsulate his remarkable 55-year career in biology at Harvard, and look forward to the critical challenges ahead.
