A first generation Lebanese-American, Nabhan was raised in Gary, Indiana.

He was also the recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship.

Nabhan has been a significant contributor in calling attention to the environmental issue of pollinator decline. He co-authored with Stephen L. Buchmann one of the key works on the topic - The Forgotten Pollinators from Island Press (1996).
