Date:1/28/2010

al 2008 edition went to biologists Thomas Lovejoy and William Laurance of the Smithsonian Institute (United States), whose work showed that the degradation of the Amazon rainforest is advancing much faster than predicted.

The jury in this second edition was chaired by Daniel Pauly, Professor of Fisheries at the University of British Columbia Fisheries Centre (Canada), with Gary Meffe, scientist in the Department of Wildlife Ecology and Conservation of the University of Florida (United States) acting as secretary. Remaining members were Wilhem Boland, Managing Director of the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Ecology (Germany), Joanna Burger, Distinguished Professor of Biology at Rutgers University (United States), and Pedro Jordano, a Research Professor in the Department of Integrative Ecology at Doana Biological Station, CSIC (Spain).

WINNERS IN OTHER AWARD CATEGORIES

The Frontiers of Knowledge Awards honor world-class research and artistic creation. The breadth of disciplines addressed and their monetary amount, an annual 3.2 million euros, place them among the foremost international award families. However their uniqueness lies in their close alignment with the scientific, technological, social and economic challenges of the present century. In this respect, they are the first to reserve dedicated categories for Climate Change; Development Cooperation; Information and Communication Technologies, and Ecology and Conservation Biology, alongside the awards going to outstanding contributions in Economics, Finance and Management; Basic Sciences; Biomedicine, and Contemporary Music.

The Ecology and Conservation Biology category is the fifth to be decided in this edition of the BBVA Foundation Frontiers of Knowledge Awards. It follows on from the awards in Climate Change (granted to German physicist and mathematician Klaus Hasselmann for demonstrating that recent global warming trends are attributable to human activities), Information
