Episode 6 Bert Hölldobler

Bert Hölldobler

Professor Bert Hölldobler is a world expert on the behavioral ecology of ants. Popularly, he is perhaps best known for his research collaborations with E. O. Wilson at Harvard, which culminated in winning a Pulitzer Prize for the book The Ants. Bert is now a Foundation Professor in the School of Life Sciences at Arizona State University, and I was co-advised by him when I earned my Ph.D.

I talked to Bert about his early career, and his mentors who include Martin Lindauer and the Nobel laureate Karl von Frisch.
