Brian Fath is being recognized for his work that combines systems theory, network analysis and thermodynamics, specifically, to investigate ecological goal functions that describe ecosystem growth and development. Fath’s acceptance address is titled "Systems Ecology, Energy Networks, and a Path to Sustainability". A companion paper will appear in a special issue of the International Journal of Sustainable Development and Planning. The Prigogine Medal was established in 2004 by the University of Siena and the Wessex Institute of Technology to honor the memory of Professor Ilya Prigogine, Nobel Prize Winner for Chemistry. The Medal is given each year to a leading scientist in the field of ecological systems.
