Scientist EO Wilson passes away

Date: 29 December 2021 Tags: Obituaries
  • Edward. O. Wilson, the U.S. scientist, professor and author whose study of insects earned him the nickname “Darwin’s natural heir”, has died at age 92.
  • Wilson was an award-winning biologist and longtime Harvard University research professor, considered the world’s leading authority on ants and their behavior.
  • While an entomologist early in his career, he broadened his scope immensely, studying not just insects but the social interactions of birds, mammals and humans, and he effectively established a new field of science known as sociobiology.
  • He was the author of hundreds of scientific papers and more than 30 books, two of which won him Pulitzer Prizes for nonfiction: 1978’s On Human Nature, and The Ants in 1990.
