Professor Kamal Bawa Elected to the U.S. National Academy of Sciences
Noted conservation biologist, INSEE Life Member and a Founding Editor of the INSEE journal, Professor Kamal Bawa has been elected to the U.S. National Academy of Sciences. Election to the more than 170-year-old Academy is a recognition of the significant contributions to science by its members and is one of the highest honours that a scientist can receive. Professor Bawa is already an elected Fellow of the Royal Society (London) and the American Philosophical Society. Professor Bawa is also President of the Bengaluru-based Ashoka Trust for Research and Ecology and Environment (ATREE).
Professor Bawa said the election was a reaffirmation of the importance of work on the ecology, conservation, and management of tropical forests that all over the world are declining but are critical to humanity’s well-being. Biodiversity in tropical forests and other natural ecosystems is an important source of many ecosystem services and offer nature-based solutions to our many challenges, including the mitigation of climate change.
Heartiest congratulations to Professor Bawa!
