British Ecological Centenary 1913 – 2013: 100 Influential Papers
In early 2012, the working group planning our Centenary asked Peter Grubb and John Whittaker to prepare the scientific content of a booklet which brought together a selection of the most influential papers published in our journals.
Peter and John chose a mix of criteria, including numbers of citations and downloads, but placed a strong emphasis on the suggestions of respected ecologists around the world; they felt that, as researchers and teachers, they could detail what had most influenced them in their thinking.
The selected papers represent a good spread over the ten decades, with an average of six per decade in the first 50 years and 13 per decade in the last 50 years.
