Award Winners 2014


MCED Award for Innovative Contributions to
Ecological Modelling

In 2014 we had a high number of excellent applications were submitted which related to different modelling approaches and a multitude of research topics. The jury consisting of the book editors, representatives of the Young Modellers and the President of the Ecological Society of Germany, Austria and Switzerland (GfÖ)  had a hard time evaluating all applications according to novelty of the approach, contribution to ecology and ecological theory and bridging the gap between science and application. This time the decision was very close. Finally Dr.Allison Shaw (Minnesota, MN, USA) was awarded for 2014.
