Edwin Scholes

With photographer Tim Laman, Edwin Scholes became the first ornithologist to document all 39 species of birds of paradise, famed for their outlandish coloring and bizarre mating dances. He is a leading authority on their behavior and evolution. Scholes’ and Laman’s work is the basis of the National Geographic Museum’s “Amazing Avian Evolution” exhibit. Scholes works as the biodiversity video curator at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology in Ithaca, New York.
