Nov. 19, British Royal Society announced the winners and runner-ups for its inaugural publishing photography competition. The competition has three categories, each representing a key area within biological sciences: Behaviour, Ecology and Environmental Science, and Evolutionary Biology. Photographs have to meet the dual criteria: both striking and of scientific importance and interest. The overall winning photograph, ‘Tadpoles overhead’ by Bert Willaert a biologist and photographer, more than satisfied these two criteria.
