Professor Brian Moss from the School of Environmental Sciences has won the Marsh Book of the Year for his book `Liberation ecology: the reconciliation of natural and human cultures’.
The award was presented at INTECOL, the world’s largest ecological meeting, hosted by the British Ecological Society (BES) in London.
Books can have a major impact in ecology but academic book publishing brings relatively little financial reward to authors. This award – which aims to recognise the contribution authors make to the science of ecology – is funded by the Marsh Christian Trust.
It is awarded to the book published in the last two years that has had the greatest influence on the science of ecology or its application, and the award is an honorarium of £1,000 plus a certificate and is open to books published anywhere in the world.
Professor Georgina Mace, President of the BES, said: “Emeritus Professor Brian Moss has been one of the most influential freshwater ecologists in Europe during the past three decades and the world’s leading scientist on shallow-lake ecology.
“Much of his research extends well beyond lakes, for example his identification of alternative stable states, studies on trophic dynamics, and his work on climatic effects on lake ecology.
“As a teacher, he has been inspirational not only to his students and the very many fellow professionals who have come under his influence, but also to a much wider audience through his writing and public lectures.
`Liberation ecology: the reconciliation of natural and human cultures’ is published by the International Ecology Institute
