Dr. Michael McManus will receive the 2010 George Varley Award for Excellence in Forest Insect Research at the upcoming International Union of Forest Research Organizations (IUFRO) meeting in Eberswalde, Germany September 12 – 16, 2010. This award recognizes outstanding Forest Entomologists, both for their scientific accomplishments and their contributions to IUFRO.

Dr. McManus is being recognized for his many accomplishments over his career, including his research on forest insect biology, but also his work in facilitating international cooperation, including his work as an IUFRO leader. George Varley, for whom the award is named, was a well-known insect population ecologist who was also the first leader of an entomology group in IUFRO during the 1950s.
