Marsh Ecology Award

2009 - Professor Mike Begon

Mike is Professor of Ecology and Deputy Head of the School of Biological Sciences at the University of Liverpool. Of his many leading contributions to ecology, Mike has co-authored three ground breaking and fundamentally important text books, Ecology, Essentials of Ecology and Population Ecology. These books are written with authority and are a must, being found on all ecologist’s book shelves. Ecology has won the Marsh Book Prize and is arguably the greatest ecological text for undergraduates ever written. It is through Mike’s world leading contribution to our science through advancing our knowledge of population dynamics, density dependence and host-pathogen dynamics that we are proud to award Mike the Marsh prize for Ecology.
