Abstract:

In the 1930s, Ricketts was a lone, largely marginalized scientist--an outcast to academia with no university degrees, memberships or honors--and his pioneering ideas were at first dismissed by the scientific establishment. Today he's usually remembered as "Doc," the beer-drinking philosopher-scientist in Steinbeck's Cannery Row, but Ricketts was actually a trailblazing ecologist who did seminal work in the emerging field on the Pacific Coast, and whose ideas, viewpoints and warnings remain timely sixty years later.
