E.O.Wilson Research Prize

Journal of Natural History

About the prize

The Journal of Natural History is an international zoological journal publishing original research and reviews in taxonomy, evolutionary biology and ecology. It maintains its historical niche by publishing a broad range of systematics papers on all animal phyla from Protozoa to Chordata, encompassing traditional taxonomic revisions and descriptions, cladistic analyses and molecular phylogenetics and phylogenomics. In order to recognize excellence in natural history research, each year the Editor in Chief and Associate Editors select one outstanding paper from the previous volume to be awarded the E.O.Wilson Research Prize. Edward O.Wilson is a multi-award winning American biologist whose career has spanned 7 decades. From his early career as an expert in the behaviour and biology of ants and island biogeography, his ground-breaking work on human-environment interactions has been influential in the shaping of modern conservation and biodiversity protection. A pioneer and once in a generation scientist, the E.O.Wilson Prize is a fitting testament to the ongoing relevance and impact of his research.
