As kids most of us are amazed by the tiny bugs roaming around in our front yards, in their micro jungles made of grass. I personally loved to watch the ants for hours. They seem to be amazingly organized and devoted to each other. Professor E.O. Wilson understands my feelings about the ants, in fact he spent a lifetime devoted to knowing everything about them. In this Nova show, The Lord of the Ants, he takes us deep into the world of ants.
At age 78, E.O. Wilson is still going through his “little savage” phase of boyhood exploration of the natural world. NOVA profiles this soft-spoken Southerner and Professor Emeritus at Harvard.
