The article authored by former MSc student Chris Chen (now studying for his PhD in the Hood Lab at York University) was awarded a status of “highly commended” (i.e. runner up) in the 2014 Haldane Prize competition sponsored by the journal Functional Ecology.
The Haldane Prize is awarded to the top-rated paper published each year in the journal authored by a new researcher (someone at the start of their research career).
