Edward O. Wilson was born in Birmingham, Alabama, in 1929 and was drawn to the natural environment from a young age. After studying evolutionary biology at the University of Alabama, he has spent his career focused on scientific research and teaching, including forty-one years on the faculty of Harvard University.
Wilson’s twenty-six books and more than four hundred mostly technical articles have won him over one hundred awards in science and letters, including two Pulitzer Prizes. Much of his personal and professional life is chronicled in the memoir Naturalist, which won the Los Angeles Times Book Award in Science in 1995. – Liveright Publishing Corporation

In Naturalist, Wilson describes for the first time both his growth as a scientist and the evolution of the science he has helped define. He traces the trajectory of his life – from a childhood spent exploring the Gulf Coast of Alabama and Florida to life as a tenured professor at Harvard – detailing how his youthful fascination with nature blossomed into a lifelong calling.
The story of Wilson’s life provides fascinating insights into the making of a scientist, and a valuable look at some of the most thought-provoking ideas of our time. – Island Press
