The Biologist was also shortlisted for Cover of the Year for its April/May issue, which used a close up of a chihuahua’s nose to illustrate a story about the evolution of pheromones.

After picking up his award at a gala dinner in Glasgow last night, Tom thanked The Biologist’s editorial board and the Society’s members for their contribution to the magazine’s recent success.

“There’s never been a more exciting time to write and edit a magazine about the life sciences. Hearing about all the work of our members and Fellows means editing The Biologist is endlessly fascinating and a real pleasure”, said Tom.

The magazine also received 'Best Design' at the awards in 2012 following its redesign from a journal into a professional membership magazine.
