The Zoological Society of London honoured two SFU biologists June 16 for their commitments to conservation research. Professor Isabelle Côté’s contributions were recognized with the Marsh Award for conservation biology, while associate professor Nicholas Dulvy received the society’s Marsh Award for marine and freshwater ecosystems.

The awards, established by British businessman Brian Marsh, are administered by the Marsh Christian Trust and seek to recognize "unsung heroes who aim to improve the world we live in."

Côté is an internationally known scientist whose research focuses on tropical coastal ecosystems. She has pioneered the use of meta-analysis in marine conservation ecology—a technique for understanding the ‘bigger picture’ by combining all available scientific data.

Dulvy, a Canada Research Chair in marine biodiversity and conservation, has earned an international reputation for his work in fisheries ecology and conservation. He came to SFU a year ago from the Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Sciences in Norwich, England.
