About the Author
Gene Odum completed a Ph.D. in zoology with a major in ecology from the University of Illinois and served a year as resident naturalist at the Edmund Niles Huyck Preserve in Rensselaerville, N.Y. He obtained the initial grant from the Atomic Energy Commission that established the Savannah River Ecology Laboratory. In 1970, the year he was elected to the National Academy of Sciences, Odum gained statewide fame for demonstrating the economic value of Georgia¿s undeveloped wetlands and thereby helping amass political support for the Coastal Marshlands Protection Act. Gene Odum is the recipient of the highest honors given in ecology ¿ the Prix de l¿Institut de la Vie and the Crafoord Prize.
