2007 Queen’s Birthday Honours

While I was at Garter Day watching the Knights and Ladies of the Garter in procession with the Royal Family and many other dignitaries, there was a lot of activity on the royal awards front. The Royal Meteorological Society is celebrating with a link to Arise Sir Brian! at the University of Reading (where I found his portrait), and here is the text of a congratulatory note from NERC:

The Natural Environment Research Council is delighted that three colleagues received awards in the Queen’s Birthday Honours this year.

Our congratulations go to:

Professor Brian HoskinsProfessor Brian Hoskins, Professor of Meteorology at the University of Reading and an advisor to many of NERC’s panels and committees, who received a Knighthood for services to environmental science.

Professor David Read, Vice President and Biological Secretary at the Royal Society and a former member of NERC’s Council, who received a knighthood for services to biological sciences.

Professor Georgina Mace, Director of the NERC Centre for Population Biology, based at Imperial College London, who received a CBE for services to environmental science.
