L. David Mech is the biologist in question. Wolves used to be almost extinct so biologists could only really observe them in captivity, that's when he wrote “The Wolf: Ecology and Behavior of an Endangered Species" back in 1970. Since wolves have made a comeback and we have things like GPS trackers, he's changed his theories to reflect the new, more accurate information of how wolves really behave in the wild.

Because people have been misusing the now disproven "alpha" concept in recent years, he's been trying to get his old book pulled from circulation, but the publisher refuses. He has an article on his webpage about it.

Why people would assume that human social structure or behavior is anything like a wolves' in the first place can't be placed on him tho.

Yep, we also have an entire culture of people who think that eating soy will turn you into a woman based on a study on sheep in the 1940's. Here's a video debunking that: The Truth About Soy Boys - hbomberguy

The entire MRA/PUA, gym bro, and manosphere is riddled with pseudoscientific rubbish to suit their agenda. I Debunked the Entire Manosphere - münecat

As far as JP, he's in that crowd of nutters but he's also a fascist propagandist. Got a 3hr long video just for calling out all his bullshit. A Brief Look At Jordan Peterson - Some More News
