Daniel Stec with the Prime Minister Award
Another great end-of-year news, this time from The Chancellery of the Prime Minister. Daniel Stec won an award for his outstanding PhD thesis defended last year!
Dr Stec was awarded for his thesis titled "Taxonomy and evolution of the Macrobiotus hufelandi complex (Tardigrada: Macrobiotidae)". The thesis deals with a research subject that is highly significant in the context of the global crisis of biodiversity. Daniel's research was judged outstanding for a combination of modern taxonomic methods, applicability, and high scientific value.
