nizations and non-governmental organizations like UNESCO that brings together scientists from all over the world to promote scientific research on biodiversity. Its goal is to generate accurate scientific information and predictive models of the status of biodiversity, and to find ways to support a more sustainable use of the Earths resources.

Professors Harold Mooney and Peter Raven have each published over 400 scientific papers. Mooneys publications include 35 books edited or co-edited, and some twenty articles in Science and Nature. In addition, his research has been cited in over 12,000 scientific papers since 1988, earning him a place in the ISIs prestigious list of Highly Cited Researchers in Ecology and Environmental Sciences. Peter Raven has authored over 450 articles in scientific journals and is editor or co-editor of 18 books, some of which have become basic text books in plant biology and environmental science. Raven has been cited in scientific papers on more than 5,000 occasions.

The jury in the Award for Scientific Research in Ecology and Conservation Biology was chaired by Carlos Duarte (Mediterranean Institute for Advanced Studies, CSIC-University of the Balearic Islands) with members William C.
