Lawrence Slobodkin, who received his Ph.D. in zoology from Yale University, is the founding chairman of the Department of Ecology and Evolution at the State University of New York, Stony Brook. He was professor of zoology at the University of Michigan for fifteen years and has taught at three major Israeli universities, and at the Smithsonian Institute di Genetica ed Evoluzionisticca, CNR, Pavia and Politecnico di Milano in Italy, Tsukuba National University in Japan, and Imperial College in London. He is a former president of the American Society of Naturalists and has served on many national scientific boards and advisory panels. Twice a Guggenheim and a Fulbright fellow, he is the author of over 200 publications and several books, including Growing and Regulation of Animal Populations and Simplicity in Games of the Intellect. His discoveries include disproof of the validity of the logistic equation, general proof of biological regulation of ecological systems and an existential game model of evolutionary strategy which refutes Wilsonian sociobiology on biological, not political grounds.
