Miguel Bastos Araújo, coordinator of the CIBIO/InBIO’s pole of the Universidade de Évora, holder of the “Rui Nabeiro” Biodiversity Chair, has been awarded with the 2013 EBBE NIELSEN PRIZE, by the Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF).

The GBIF Science Committee recognized the quality and groundbreaking character of Miguel B. Araújo’s research in applying informatics to model and forecast environmental phenomena, specifically related with the effects of different climate change scenarios on regional and global biodiversity patterns. The €30,000 prize will be used in the development of an ‘Ecotron’ experimental facility that will allow validating predictions of the impact of environmental change on biodiversity in different locations, helping to inform conservation decisions.

The Ebbe Nielsen Prize “was established by the GBIF Governing Board to honour the memory of Dr Ebbe Schmidt Nielsen, who was an inspirational leader in the fields of biosystematics and biodiversity informatics. The prize is awarded annually to a promising researcher, usually in the early stages of his/her career, who is combining biosystematics and biodiversity informatics research in an exciting and novel way.”
