Symbiotic Earth: How Lynn Margulis Rocked the Boat and Started a Scientific Revolution

Lynn Margulis was a leading and renowned 20th century microbiologist whose research revealed evolution to be a result of collaboration, not just competition. A documentary by award-winning filmmaker John Feldman.
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - Sept. 20, 2018 - PRLog -- Biodiversity for a Livable Climate will screen Symbiotic Earth, a new documentary about the life and work of pioneering  microbiologist Lynn Margulis.  She challenged the conventional view that evolution represents survival of the fittest. She demonstrated that symbiosis, or living together, and cooperation lie at the heart of the origin of species.  She persisted for decades, and overcoming often fierce resistance from the scientific community she re-wrote the story of evolution.

Co-sponsored by the Encyclopedia of Life, Harvard Graduate Women in Science and Engineering, and the Harvard Extension School Environmental Club (HESEC), Symbiotic Earth will feature a panel of Lynn's distinguished colleagues who also appear in the film: Professor Doug Zook of UMass Boston's School for the Environment and Professor Betsey Dexter Dyer of Wheaton College, author of A Field Guide to Bacteria. James MacAllister, archivist and the film's co-producer, will join the panel. Biodiversity for a Livable Climate's Executive Director Adam Sacks will moderate. The organization is honored to have the film's writer/director John Feldman introduce the event.

The screening of Symbiotic Earth ( will take place on September 22 from 1-5pm at Harvard University* at the Geological Lecture Hall, 24 Oxford Street, Cambridge, 02138.
