The Society of Biology Award for general biology books recognises accessible, engaging and informative life sciences books written for a non-specialist audience. The winner was announced this evening (14th October) at the King’s Fund in London as part of Biology Week.
Dr William Marshall, Fellow of the Society of Biology and Chair of the judging panel, said; ‘Feral is an important and captivating book concerning humanity’s stewardship of the earth. It should be read by amateur and professional biologists alike and will strike a chord with anyone who is concerned about the impact of mankind's ever increasing demands on our natural capital. The creation of powerful images makes the reader feel involved in the story.’
The General Biology Book Award was judged by: Dr William Marshall (Chair), emeritus reader in clinical biochemistry at King's College London; Dr Lewis Dartnell, astrobiology research fellow at the University of Leicester; Martin Redfern, producer of the BBC Radio Science Unit for the last 25 years; and Connie St Louis, freelance broadcaster, journalist, writer and scientist.
