1 Title:   Eugene Odum research files: Eniwetok Atoll, old-field plant specimens, and Southern Nuclear Task Force  Requires cookie*
  Creator:   Odum, Eugene Pleasants, 1913-2002  
  Dates:   1950-1970  
Most of this collection consists of materials related to the important 1954 expedition to Eniwetok Atoll taken by Dr. Eugene Odum and his brother, Dr. Howard Odum. Dr. Odum's biographer, Dr. Betty Jean Craige, wrote about the expedition in "A Tribute to Eugene P. Odum" in the University of Georgia's Research Magazine in the summer of 2002: "Because he himself had focused primarily on the biological sciences, Gene appreciated opportunities to collaborate with his younger brother Howard Thomas Odum, who had studied the physical sciences. After spending the summer of 1954 doing research together on the coral reefs of the Eniwetok Atoll, the young ecologists showed in an award-winning paper that symbiosis maintained an equilibrium between corals and algae. Gene came to believe that symbiosis worked similarly in social systems: that interdependence leads to cooperation and hence to social stability. ...The paper, "Trophic Structure and Productivity of a Windward Coral Reef Community on Eniwetok Atoll," published in Ecological Monographs in 1955, won the Mercer Award from the Ecological Society of America in 1956." Other research-related materials are included in the collection, including a set of plant specimens collected in Clarke County in relation to the class Ecology 353.
