Legendary biologist Edward O. Wilson will present “The Social Conquest of Earth” — the final lecture in this year’s President’s Lecture Series — April 3 at 8 p.m. in Rice Memorial Center’s Grand Hall. Seating opens at 7 p.m. His talk is free and open to the public. A book signing will follow the lecture.
Known as the “father of sociobiology,” Wilson has made a giant contribution to understanding of the rich spectrum of Earth’s biodiversity. In his lectures, Wilson makes a persuasive, eloquent plea to government, corporate and religious leaders to address the damage humans have done to the planet before it’s too late.
