Edward O. Wilson | An Island Press author

Remembering Edward O. Wilson

Our thoughts are with the family of Edward O. Wilson, the biologist and author, who died yesterday at the age of 92. His visionary work on biodiversity, ants, and human nature brought new understanding of and appreciation for evolutionary biology, biological diversity, and the importance of preserving the natural world. As gifted a writer as he was a scientist, he twice won the Pulitzer Prize. We at Island Press were honored to publish his autobiography, Naturalist, to great acclaim, most recently in graphic form.

 Dr. Wilson was a pioneer in science and an eloquent, passionate voice for the natural world. He will be sorely missed by all.
