The John M. Prather Lectures in Biology were founded in 1939 with a bequest from John McClellan Prather, A.B. 1894. The series brings eminent scientists such as Pulitzer Prize winner Edward O. Wilson, to Harvard to discuss both their science as well as the perspectives on the direction of science. The series is co hosted by the Departments of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology and Molecular and Cellular Biology.

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.
