We are filled with great sadness to learn that E.O. Wilson, one of the greatest minds to have devoted their lives to the study
and preservation of nature in the 20th century, passed away on Sunday the 26th of December at the age of 92.
A pioneer in sociobiology and the person to prove that biodiversity is an ecological necessity not an emotional one.
He motivated many to follow into his footsteps as a great scientist, author and educator.
However, as the world's leading expert in ants, he likely touched even more antkeepers like ourselves.
