A Lifetime Achievement Award for the Museum Chair, Prof. Tamar Dayan
We congratulate the Museum Chair, Prof. Tamar Dayan, on being awarded a lifetime achievement award by the Israel Society of Ecology and Environmental Sciences.
The award citation stated: ”One of the defining characteristics of Prof. Dayan’s career is the range of fields in which she and her students undertake research. Prof. Dayan has supervised not only zoologists and ecologists but also jurists and planners while collaborating with researchers from different disciplines. But the crowning glory of her career is the establishment of the Steinhardt Museum of Natural History in Tel Aviv. Until the museum’s establishment, the national collections were mostly hidden from view. Prof. Dayan has successfully turned the museum into the main center of action for nature conservation in Israel”.
