Republicans Gather In Tampa For GOP Convention: The Republican National Convention is heating up. Delegates formally nominated Mitt Romney Tuesday afternoon to represent the GOP party in the 2012 presidential election. Ann Romney and Chris Christie addressed convention attendees Tuesday night. The two speakers played opposite roles — Ann Romney presented her husband in a flattering, personal light while New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie played GOP attack dog. Earlier on Tuesday, Republicans approved a toughly worded party platform that would ban all abortions and gay marriages, reshape Medicare into a voucher–like program and reject federal spending as an antidote for the nation's ailing job market.

These are just some of the questions biologist and naturalist Edward O. Wilson grapples with in his latest book, "The Social Conquest of Earth."
