 The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences has awarded the 2011 Crafoord Prize to ecologist Iikaa Hanski of the University of Helsinki in Finland.

The Crafoord Prize rewards research in areas not covered by the Nobel Prizes, and rotates among a number of fields, including geology and astrophysics.

This time the prize is for biosciences. Iikaa Hanski has been honored for developing analytical methods and models to help investigate how plants and animals are affected when the species undergo splitting, owing, for example to urbanization, deforestation, and climate change.
