With fellow entomologist Bert Holldobler, Ed has written the definitive volume on ants, which won the 1991 Pulitzer Prize for non-fiction. He also won an earlier Pulitzer in 1979 for his book entitled *On Human Nature*. Ed is the recipient of the National Medal of Science, the International Prize for Biology, the gold medal of the World Wildlife Fund, the Distinguished Humanist Award from the American Humanist Association, and the Crafoord Prize from the Swedish Academy of Sciences (which is ecology's approximation of the Nobel prize).
