Professor Kathy Willis awarded BES Marsh Award for Ecology

Congratulations to Professor Kathy Willis who has been awarded the British Ecological Society Marsh Award for Ecology.

Provided by the Marsh Christian Trust and administered by the BES, this is awarded for a current research record which is having a significant impact on the development of the science of ecology or its application.

Professor Richard Bardgett, President of the British Ecological Society, said: “Our annual awards honour exceptional ecologists across all career stages, recognising their contributions to advancing and communicating ecological knowledge. I would like to congratulate all winners for their impressive accomplishments.”

The winners will be presented with their prizes during a ceremony held at the Society’s annual conference in December, which will bring together 1,200 ecologists from around 60 countries to discuss the latest advances in ecological research across the whole discipline.
