              Miguel Bastos Araújo received the €30,000 Ebbe Nielsen Prize, awarded annually by the GBIF Science Committee, at the hosted dinner for the 20th GBIF Governing Board in Berlin, on 8 October 2013. In making the selection, the GBIF Science Committee recognized Araújo’s groundbreaking research in deploying biodiversity informatics to model and forecast environmental phenomena, specifically the effects of different climate change scenarios on regional and global biodiversity patterns. His presentation during the 2013 GBIF Science Symposium "Why do species occur where they do?", summarized current understanding of the determinants of species distributions with particular emphasis on the development of predictive models of biodiversity change, while proposing a research agenda for the forthcoming years that involves greater integration between otherwise disconnected disciplines in life sciences.
