E.O. Wilson’s latest book Every Species is a Masterpiece is out! It brings together some of Wilson’s most significant writings on the rich diversity of life on Earth, our place in it, and our obligation to conserve Earth’s fragile ecosystems. It also includes a chapter on Half-Earth from “Half-Earth: Our Planet’s Fight for Life.”
The publisher, Penguin Books, shared that over the past 75 years, a new canon has emerged. As life on Earth has become irrevocably altered by humans, visionary thinkers around the world have raised their voices to defend the planet, and affirm our place at the heart of its restoration. Their words have endured through the decades, becoming the classics of a movement. Every Species is a Masterpiece shows the richness of environmental thought, and points the way to a fairer, saner, greener world. The cover illustration is of nematodes, worms that are an essential part of the biosphere, and what E.O. Wilson has called, “the little things that run the world.” Purchase the book on Amazon and other retailers.
