TitleGodwin, Sir Harry: certificate of election to the Royal Society
CitationDistinguished as an ecologist and as the leading authority on the post-glacial history of British vegetation, particularly as revealed by the technique of pollen analysis of peats and other pleistocene and recent deposits. On the basis of numerous original discoveries and careful critical correlation he is placing this subject on a secure inductive foundation and making important contributions to its correlation with archaeology. Has published, from 1929 onwards, a long series of papers, both independently and jointly, on the ecology and history of fen and bog vegetations, including several on the technique and application of the method of pollen analysis, and is directing the work of an increasing number of investogations in these fields. Has long been Secretary and for a recent term President of the British Ecological Society, and is one of the editors of the New Phytologist.
