Minnesota ecology professor wins international award for biodiversity and biofuels research
Date:10/7/2008

" said Bob Elde, dean of the College of Biological Sciences. "And no one deserves it more that Dave Tilman. His stature as a scientist honors the university, the college, his colleagues and our students. We are very fortunate that he has chosen Cedar Creek as his laboratory."

The International Prize in Biology was created in 1985 to commemorate the 60-year reign of Emperor Showa of Japan and his longtime interest in and support for the biological sciences. The Japan Society for the Promotion of Science selects recipients. This year, the society distributed nearly 2,000 nomination forms to universities worldwide, and based their selection on nominations from institutions in 17 countries. Criteria included originality, impact on ecology, and contribution to biology in general.

Tilman was named the most cited environmental scientist for 1997-2007 by Essential Science Indicators in June.
