Regents Professor David Tilman Wins International Prize for Biology

Regents Professor David Tilman, an MSI Principal Investigator, has been named the 2008 recipient of the International Prize for Biology for his research proving that biodiversity makes ecosystems more productive and resistant to drought, disease, and pests. His research was carried out at Cedar Creek Ecosystem Science Reserve. Tilman and his research group use MSI to host their database and Web page. They also use databases housed at the SDML for organizing decades of data and distributing it to ecology-research communities.
