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

Chancellor Jimmy G. Cheek said he's elated that Simberloff has received the Margalef Award.

"To earn this award, on top of his recent election to the National Academy of Sciences, underscores the groundbreaking work Dr. Simberloff does to help us understand our world and preserve our environment," Cheek said. "Our students and our campus community are fortunate to have faculty of Dr. Simberloff's caliber. Their teaching and research raise the profile of UT and its impact on the world and fuel our journey to becoming a Top 25 public research university."

Theresa Lee, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, said Simberloff is a key contributor in an outstanding department and has been instrumental in attracting superb junior faculty.

"His research has established him as a world leader in the study of invasive species. This honor is richly deserved," she said.

Gary McCracken, head of the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, said Simberloff has distinguished himself, not only as a scientist, but also as an exemplary teacher and colleague.

"He has been a wonderful mentor for graduate students, post-docs, and junior faculty. He has been a major force in building the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology into the great department that it is, having served on and chaired on a large number of faculty search committees and with long service on graduate admissions," McCracken said. "Some may think of great scientists as unapproachable or in their 'bubble.' That is decidedly not Dan. He is always available with wise and humorous counsel, and for the last 15 years he has been a fabulous citizen at UT and within our department."

Although the Margalef Award was officially announced today, Simberloff learned of the honor three weeks ago while in France. Since he was planning to travel to Barcelona the next day to deliver his daughter to a summer study abroad program, the Margalef committee arranged to
