last modified Aug 07, 2013 04:51 PM
Dr Tom Fayle has been awarded the Alfred Russel Wallace prize by the Royal Entomological Society for his studies of the ant community structure in a rain forest microcosm.

"The award is for post-graduates who have been awarded a PhD, whose work is considered by their Head of Department to be outstanding. The research involved should be a major contribution to the Science of Entomology." A letter from the Society stated that "there was a very strong field this year, but his work and the manner of its presentation in his thesis received top ranking from the assessment panel and he is to be congratulated on a significant and substantial contribution to entomology"

This is the second prize Tom has won for his work, he won the ZSL's Thomas Henry Huxley Award and Marsh Prize earlier this year. You can find out more about Tom on the Insect Ecology Group's website.
