Kim's BES prize

We're all very proud of Kim, who was recently announced as the winner of the British Ecological Society Methods in Ecology and Evolution (MEE) RobertMay early career researcher award (see http://www.britishecologicalsociety.org/grants-awards/honours_awards_prizes/prize-for-the-best-paper-by-a-young-author/robert-m-may-prize/). Kim won for his paper "Nondestructive estimates of above-ground biomass using terrestrial laser scanning" (seehttp://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/enhanced/doi/10.1111/2041-210X.12301). The paper was the culmination of Kim's PhD work, and involved many of our long-term collaborators, and it was a key piece of evidence vindicating our approach to using TLS to estimate biomass. Kim's paper received quite a lot of attention when it was published, featuring on the UCL News front page amongst other places (see https://www.ucl.ac.uk/news/news-articles/1114/211114-laser-scanning-weighs-trees), and has already been cited 30 times in less than a year. I'm not surprised, and I've no doubt it will go on to be cited many times, given its groundbreaking demonstration of the maturity of TLS for biomass.
