“We need more field biologists to explore the ecosystems of the world, from the highest mountain tops to the bottom of the ocean trenches.”—E.O. Wilson
E.O. Wilson delivers the Inaugural James and Cathleen Stone Foundation Distinguished Lectureship in Biodiversity on February 8, 2014 at the Washington Duke Inn in Durham, North Carolina, co-sponsored by the E.O. Wilson Biodiversity Foundation and the Nicholas School of the Environment at Duke University.
Following his lecture, E.O. Wilson answers wide-ranging questions from the audience, on such topics as how biodiversity affects the manufacture of pharmaceuticals, synthetic biology and designer genes, and how developing nations can engage with concerns about biodiversity.
