Josep Peñuelas has been awarded with the Marsh Award for Climate Change Research (British Ecological Society)

The British Ecological Society (BES) announced the winners of its annual awards and prizes, recognising eight distinguished ecologists whose work has benefited the scientific community and society in general.

Among the winners are Professor Josep Peñuelas from the National Research Council of Spain (CSIC), whose research on the biological impacts of climate change has led to the discovery of ecophysiological mechanisms linked to carbon and oxygen use that help to explain plant species distribution, as well as Dr Ruth Waters, Deputy Chief Scientist at Natural England, who has been praised for working alongside researchers, policymakers and the wider public to promote an ecosystem approach within UK conservation.
