University of Tennessee professor wins world's top prize for ecology, environmental science
Date:7/19/2012

KNOXVILLEA University of Tennessee, Knoxville, professor who is one of the world's leading experts on invasive species has received the world's pre-eminent prize for ecology and environmental science.

Daniel Simberloff, the Gore-Hunger Professor of Environmental Studies in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, has won the 2012 Ramon Margalef Award for Ecology. The award is presented annually by the Government of Catalonia, an autonomous region in northeast Spain, "to recognize an exceptional scientific career or discovery in the field of ecological science."

Simberloff, who in May became UT's third faculty member in history to be elected to the National Academy of Sciences, is being honored for "his contributions to the observation and theoretical analysis of the structure and dynamics of ecological communities, and for the application of these studies to conservation biology."

Ecologists worldwide are considered for the prize named for Margalef, one of Spain's most distinguished scientists and a founding father of modern ecology. The prize includes a cash award of about $100,000 and a sculpture memorializing Margalef.

"That a committee of leading ecologists should choose me for this honor is highly gratifying. The previous prizewinners are all stars of ecology whose work I've long admired," said Simberloff, who returned to UT this week after a year-long development leave in France where he lectured, helped conduct a workshop and wrote a book and several manuscripts.

"My scientific accomplishments all result from having always been surrounded by excellent graduate students, post-doctoral fellows and interactive colleagues," Simberloff said. "I've learned far more from them than they have from me over the years, and I cannot emphasize enough how important and exciting it is to be surrounded by good scientists doing interesting research and willing to give instant feedback on one's own ideas."
