Bangor Lecturer wins 2012 Peter Savill Award
Dr Christine Cahalan, School of Environment, Natural Resources and Geography, has been awarded the 2012 Peter Savill Award. The prize, which is awarded each year by Woodland Heritage, is to recognise the contribution of an individual who has significantly benefited British Forestry, in this case for Forestry Education.
Graham Taylor of Woodland Heritage said that "Christine's contributions to lecturing and research are considerable, as are her contributions to charities and committees outside the University. She was responsible for much of the early work on selecting Sycamore and Ash, which laid a foundation for much of the Future Trees Trust's subsequent actions - something that Woodland Trust remain hugely supportive of. She has spent many decades investing in the future of Forestry in the UK and is more than worthy of the Peter Savill Award".
Christine, who first began lecturing at Bangor in Silviculture and Forest Genetics in 1983, is now Head of the School of Environment, Natural Resources and Geography.
