Scott Ferrenberg, who recently finished his Ph.D. with Jeff Mitton, found out that the editors of Functional Ecology selected his recent paper with Jeff, "Smooth bark surfaces can defend trees against insect attack: resurrecting a ‘slippery’ hypothesis" for receipt of the 2014 Haldane Prize for the best paper by a young author in 2014.  

In addition to the £250 (sterling) prize money, the award includes a year’s membership to the British Ecological Society and a year’s subscription to Functional Ecology.  He is also invited to make a presentation at this year's Annual General Meeting in Edinburgh, UK, before receiving his award from President of the British Ecological Society at the Awards Ceremony.

Congratulations Scott!
