Brown Honored by Philippine Government

Tuesday, December 18, 2012

Ten Filipino scientists and one American (EEB's Rafe Brown) were publicly honored in a ceremony in Manila last week by the Philippine government for their contributions to biodiversity conservation and species discoveries in the island nation. The Philippine Inquirer reported that the researchers "were honored for their role in the discovery over the past 25 years of close to 300 species of plants and animals found only in the Philippines... cited was Rafe Brown from Kansas University, who, while working with the DENR’s Protected Areas and Wildlife Bureau (PAWB) in the past 20 years, discovered at least 54 animal species—28 reptiles and 26 amphibians."
