Nineteenth Century naturalists overwhelmed by the abundance of life in a tropical rainforest. From J.B.. von Spix and C.F. P. Martius, 1817-1820.

In 1963, the Council of the Association for Tropical Biology and Conservation (then known as the ATB) established the selection of Honorary Fellows —  “persons of long distinguished service to tropical biology.” This is the highest award given by the Association; to date more than 80 Honorary Fellows from over 15 countries have been elected by the Council.

Any member of ATBC wishing to submit a nomination for the Honorary Fellow Award should submit a cover letter with a one-two page justification of the nomination and the nominees curriculum vitae to the Chair of the Honorary Fellows Committee.  Fellows are selected by the ATBC Council.
