Title 1998 Sewall Wright Award: William Donald Hamilton
Date 1999
Description The Sewall Wright Award was established in 1991 to honor active investigators who have contributed in especially significant ways to the conceptual unification of the biological sciences. This year's recipient is William D. Hamilton of Oxford University. Beginning in the 1960s with his papers on the theory of inclusive fitness and the evolution of eusociality, Bill Hamilton's publications have permanently changed the landscape of ideas and interpretation surrounding a wide range of biological phenomena. His papers have clarified murky problems, generated new research agendas, and unified our understanding of many central concepts, on a truly revolutionary scale.
