It was with great consternation that we received the new of Georgina Mace’s death. We want to honor the life and work of this fantastic ecologist and professor at University College of London. From 2002 to 2005 she was fully committed to the biodiversity sections of the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment and in 2018 she was appointed as a member of the Climate Change Adaptation Committee, working as a consultant to the British government for the development of policies to minimize the impacts caused by changes of climate. As President of the British Society of Ecology, President of the Society for Biological Conservation, member of the Scientific Committee of Diversitas, was awarded numerous awards.In 2011 was the first researcher to receive the Ernst Haeckel Prize from EEF, which distinguish high level ecologists with a scientific curriculum of excellence. Her work focused essentially on biodiversity loss and ecosystem change. She became one of the most important scientists on conservation biology, and an active voice for her causes and research. Her legacy is enormous, as well as the influence in all of us.
Thank you Georgina!
