David Tilman, Regents Professor of Ecology, Evolution and Behavior in the University of Minnesota’s College of Biological Sciences, was elected a foreign member of the Royal Society of London. The society was founded in 1660 and counts among its membership Isaac Newton, Charles Darwin, Albert Einstein and many other eminent scholars from across the ages.
Fifty distinguished scientists were elected as 2017 Fellows of the Royal Society for their outstanding contributions to science.
“I’m honored to be part of this incredible long tradition,” Tilman said. “It’s an amazing organization.”
