The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences has decided to award Tobias Uller with Tage Erlander’s prize in the category biology. Tobias Uller is awarded the prize for ”his studies within evolutionary biology, particularly phenotypic plasticity”. That is, the ability of different organisms to change characteristics, behaviour or complexion depending on the environment they live in.

The prize is 275 000 Swedish kronor. 200 000 kronor as a research prize and 75 000 kronor to be used to arrange a workshop or a symposium.

Tobias Uller has already thought about how to use the research money.

”I have a few ideas about exciting things. It is possible to do quite a lot with 200 000 kronor”.
