NCBS team wins award from American Society of Naturalists

A team of evolutionary biologists from city-based National Centre for Biological Sciences (NCBS) have been awarded the 2018 Presidential Award from the American Society of Naturalists (ASN). This is the first time researchers in Asia have been presented with the award. The award is given to an outstanding research article published in the society’s journal, The American Naturalist. Jahnavi Joshi, Anupama Prakash and lead author Krushnamegh Kunte from NCBS had, in a research paper published in the journal in April 2017, probed how evolutionary processes shape the formation of ecological communities in diverse tropical ecosystems.
