Scientist Tim Flannery is first Austrailian to receive Joseph Leidy Award
Date:10/26/2010

PHILADELPHIADr. Tim Flannery, an internationally acclaimed scientist, explorer and conservationist, will receive the Academy of Natural Sciences' Joseph Leidy Award, the museum announced today. He is the first Australian to receive the award since it was established in 1923.

One of Australia's leading thinkers and writers, Flannery has discovered more than 30 new species of mammals, including living animals. He has published more than 130 peer-reviewed scientific papers and many books on evolution, extinction and climate change, including the landmark The Future Eaters and The Weather Makers, which has been translated into more than 20 languages. In 2005, he was named Australian Humanist of the Year, and in 2007 he was honored as Australian of the Year.

Flannery will receive the Leidy Award and give a free public talk on "Deep Time and Nature Conservation: Lessons from Australasia" at 6:30 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 16. The program is supported by the Raynier Institute & Foundation. To register, visit ansp.org/adult-programs/lectures.php.

Robert Peck, senior fellow and head of the Academy's medal selection committee, said Flannery was chosen because "he is so accomplished in so many areas," including many of the ones to which the Academy has been devoted for almost 200 years: vertebrate paleontology, mammalogy, evolutionary biology, and climate change.

"Dr. Flannery has a rare gift for communicating complex environmental issues in a way that makes them immediately understandable and compelling for the general public," said Academy President and CEO George Gephart. "His broad vision of evolution and its relevance to today's world has made him one of this generation's most influential thinkers, writers and speakers on environmental topics ranging from wildlife conservation to climate change."

The Joseph Leidy Award was established in 1923 to recognize excellence in publications, exp
