Collection Description

Historical Note

Eugene P. Odum (1913-2002) earned his Doctorate degree in Zoology from the University of Illinois in 1939 and in 1940 became an instructor in Biology at the University of Georgia. During the 1940s he founded the Institute of Ecology at the University of Georgia. In 2007 the Institute of Ecology was renamed as the Odum School of Ecology and was the first stand-alone academic unit of a research university to Ecology. Odum also founded two field research stations: the University of Georgia Marine Institute and the Savannah River Ecology Lab. In additiona, Odum adopted and developed the term "ecosystem" and co-wrote a textbook-Fundamentals of Ecology-with his brother, Howard Thomas Odum, in 1953. By 1970, when the first Earth Day was organized, Odum's conception of the living Earth as a global set of interlaced ecosystems became one of the key insights of the environmental movement.
