NOVA: Naturalist E.O. Wilson - Lord of the Ants
As produced by WGBH - Boston's PBS affiliate - this documentary program provides a biographical portrait of Earth-shaking entomologist and zoologist E.O. Wilson. In 1975, Wilson published a now classic tome entitled Sociobiology: The New Synthesis, which posited the idea that evolutionary concepts could be used to account for social behavior in the animal kingdom (including the behavior of homo sapiens). Upon its initial appearance, the book generated tremendous controversy and dissent, but in time the scientific community linked genes to human behavior; their findings virtually guaranteed Wilson a reputation as the father of sociobiology. The program discusses Wilson's early life, his research, the implications of his findings and his subsequent move into conservation efforts. Harrison Ford narrates. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
