Spotlight on student research - congratulations to the winner!

The European section was the first in participating to a new award for SCB students, the Spotlight on Student Research:!. Every 3 months, all SCB media will profile an SCB student member (undergrad and postgrad) whose research exemplifies the mission of the Society for Conservation Biology to advance the science and practice of conserving the Earth's biological diversity.

We are pleased to announce the first winner: Jasper Kenter, a PhD student in Environmental Sustainability at the University of Aberdeen, Scotland. Jasper will be awarded a free registration to the European Congress on Conservation Biology in Glasgow next year.

The judges highly commended for their outstanding research the second and third classified, Diogo Verissimo at the Durrell Institute of Conservation and Ecology, University of Kent, UK and Moreno Di Marco, at the Global Mammal Assessment programme, University of Rome La Sapienza. Visit! to download the research profile of the winner and learn more about this initiative.

The European round was coordinated by Prof. Robert Marrs to whom goes a big thank you. Thank you also to Prof. Andras Baldi, Prof. Martin Dietrich, and Prof. Sadie Ryan Simonovich for promoting the initiative and assessing proposals.
