TitleMcNamara, John Michael: certificate of election to the Royal Society
Date30 September 2009
DescriptionCertificate of Election
CitationProfessor of Mathematics and Biology, School of Mathematics, University of Bristol
McNamara has developed fundamental approaches, methods and modelling tools for the functional analysis of behaviour. His work provides a consistent logic and mathematical rigour for the theoretical and conceptual basis of the field of behavioural ecology. The general framework he proposed and developed exposes the logic of how individual actions contribute to lifetime reproductive success, and provides a common currency for actions. The framework has provided a natural way of building more holistic and realistic models of behaviour, allowing it to depend on state and time, and has had a profound influence on the modelling of behaviour across the entire field.
