TitleThomas, Christian David: certificate of election to the Royal Society
Date28 September 2005
DescriptionCertificate of Election
CitationProfessor, Department of Biology, University of York
Chris Thomas' research has placed spatial scale in a central position in modern ecology. He has been one of the prime movers in the study of metapopulations, and his work has changed the way ecologists view populations as well as having substantial impacts on the application of ecology to biological conservation. He has combined that framework with an evolutionary approach to the impacts of climate change on species' distributions, and has made the first quantitative estimates of the global impact of climate change on extinction. He successfully moves between leading-edge fundamental science and its application to practice and policy.
