UGA Regents Professor Bernard C. Patten won the 2006 Senior Researcher Prigogine Medal for his work on nature’s invisible pathways of energy and matter transfer.

Patten received the medal-jointly awarded by Siena University, Italy and the Wessex Institute of Technology, United Kingdom-during the fourth international conference on urban regeneration and sustainability held in July in Tallinn, Estonia. Patten also served as keynote speaker.

Patten has taught and pursued a nontraditional kind of ecology known as systems ecology for almost 40 years at UGA’s Institute of Ecology.
