Author Info
Edward O. Wilson
Edward Osborne Wilson is an American biologist whose entomological interests led him to write "The Insect Societies" (1971), after which he went on to consider behavior and organization in a variety of animal species in his book "Sociobiology" (1975). The latter title virtually created a new subject dealing with the behavior of species from termites to man, and both books stimulated valuable research and provoked vigorous discussion. Wilson has been the Frank B. Baird Jr. Professor of Science and curator in entomology at Harvard University, and is regarded as one of the world's most respected authorities on ants. In addition to two Pulitzer prizes, Wilson has won many scientific awards, including the National Medal of Science and the Crawford Prize of the Royal Swedish Academy of Science.
