HOBOKEN, N.J. -- Edward O. Wilson, Pellegrino University Research Professor, Emeritus, at Harvard University, is the recipient of the first Green Book Award from Stevens Institute of Technologys Center for Science Writings. John Horgan, Director of the Center for Science Writings, created the Green Book Award to draw attention to books that raise awareness of environmental issues.
Wilson, one of the worlds best-known scientists, was selected for his book, The Creation: An Appeal to Save Life on Earth. Written as a letter from Wilson to a Christian pastor, The Creation argues that secular scientists and people of faith can find common ground in the cause of conserving nature.
Wilson, both an author and co-author of 20 books, has received many prizes for his writings, including two Pulitzers (for The Ants, co-written with Bert Holldobler, and On Human Nature). He has also won the National Medal of Science and the Crafoord Prize, the equivalent of a Nobel Prize for ecology.
