University of Liverpool, Liverpool L69 3BX, United Kingdom

Recipient of the International Ecology Institute (ECI) Prize 2009 in limnetic ecology

 


 

Professor Brian Moss has invested his scientific and scholarly skills into studies on freshwater ecosystems from the Arctic to the tropics. Particularly outstanding is his work on the eutrophication of shallow lakes. One of the many virtues in his research is his ability to elucidate how entire freshwater ecosystems behave under anthropogenic pressures such as nutrient loads or climate change. Brian Moss was one of the first scientists to carry out full-scale biomanipulation studies, using trophic cascade theory to address ecological problems. His excellence in research is mirrored in his abilities to present cutting-edge science with a touch of poetry and art. Professor Brian Moss is a most worthy recipient of the ECI prize in limnetic ecology 2009.

 

EE Book 24 provides a lucid description of Earth’s natural history and its physical and biological processes. Drawing together science, the arts and anthropology, the author sheds light on today’s unprecedented human disruption of these processes, and discusses alternative futures. His account is enjoyable for the layperson, but also informative to the academic. In meeting the aims of the International Ecology Institute — cross-disciplinarity, a balance of specialist and generalist research, conveying important ecological issues to all, and reconciling human progress with the protection of nature — the author provides a work of inspiration for those hoping to steer humanity back towards sustainability.
