Eugene P. Odum: Pioneer of Ecosystem Ecology

Eugene P. Odum: Pioneer of Ecosystem Ecology

BioScience 52(11): 47-8

Eugene P. Odum (1914-2002), a founder of the discipline of ecosystem ecology, died on August 10, 2002, aged 88. Odum began the education of generations of ecologists throughout the world with the publication of his book Fundamentals of Ecology in 1953. Odum's greatest achievement was probably the establishment of the Institute of Ecology, which today is recognized as one of the leading institutions in the world for training ecologists. A pioneer in promoting large-scale research and interdisciplinary education, Odum received numerous honors during his illustrious career.
