Wilson was a gifted writer, the author of two Pulitzer Prize-winning books: On Human Nature and The Ants. He called his memoir, which captures his fascination with ants, Naturalist. His other books included SociobiologyThe Diversity of LifeThe Future of LifeConsilience and In Search of Nature. An authorized biography of E.O. Wilson, by science writer Richard Rhodes, came out just before Wilson died at the age of 92 in 2021.
