Sir Paul Patrick Gordon Bateson, FRS (born 31 March 1938) is an English biologist and science writer. Bateson is emeritus professor of ethology at Cambridge University and president of the Zoological Society of London since 2004.

Bateson's grandfather's cousin was the geneticist William Bateson, and his daughter is Melissa Bateson, also a professor of ethology, at Newcastle University. Patrick Bateson received a BA degree in zoology and a PhD degree in animal behaviour from Cambridge University. Previous academic positions include a Harkness Fellowship at Stanford University[1] and ten years as head of the Cambridge sub-department of Animal Behaviour. He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society (FRS) in 1983.[citation needed]

Bateson retired as the biological secretary to the Royal Society after five years and Provost of King's College, Cambridge after fifteen years in 2003. He retired from his Cambridge Chair in 2005. Bateson was knighted in 2003. He received an Honorary ScD degree from the University of St Andrews[2] and an Honorary Fellowship from Queen Mary University of London.[3]

"For many years what had been good enough for Darwin was good enough for me. Not long after that dreadful dinner, Richard Dawkins wrote to me to ask whether I would publicly affirm my atheism. I could see no reason why not." " Lewis Smith, 'Science has second thoughts about life', The Times (London), January 1, 2008, Pg. 24.
