Jordi Bascompte awarded the Ramon Margalef Prize!

"Understanding the functioning and robustness of natural communities requires thinking in terms of networks," says Jordi Bascompte.
Margalef was well known for having introduced information theory in ecology and for advocating a view of ecosystems based on basic, general physical principles, mainly thermodynamics. This prize was created in 2004, the year Margalef passed away, as an homage to his legacy.
