    sponsor the Expo 90 Foundation Paine has been with the UW since 1962 served as chair of the Department of Zoology for eight years and has been an emeritus professor since 1998 It was at Makah Bay on the Makah Indian reservation on the Washington coast that Paine developed the keystone species concept the idea that apex predators drive the diversity in an ecosystem Before Paine s experiments scientists believed that each species had equal bearing on the functioning of a habitat He showed that when the common starfish Pisaster ochraceus was removed from a natural intertidal shore its preferred prey mussels freely proliferated and pushed out other organisms such as algae and snails This cascade effect first observed by Paine helped explain the importance of other keystone species such as killer whales wolves sea otters and lions in maintaining species richness in various ecosystems Although Dr Paine s work on the starfish was conducted nearly half a century ago its significance is still highly valued today according to the Cosmos Prize judges This is not simply a matter of cooperation and collaboration eat or be eaten struggles and competition also play essential parts Dr Paine has clarified these facts using very explicit approaches providing important guidance for considering present day biodiversity His life s work was recently featured in a Nature science story Paine who earned his bachelor s degree from Harvard University and his doctorate from the University of Michigan has only worked at one academic institution the UW Among other things he s advised 34 doctoral candidates served on numerous National Research Council panels and reached out to the public with projects such as a book The Intertidal Wilderness written to help the public understand the workings of nature sharpen their observation skills and learn the conservation consequences of altering those workings In 21 years of awarding the Cosmos Prize only the UW has had two winners Estella Leopold emeritus professor of biology was given the award in 2010 Share this Facebook Twitter Email Print Tagged with College of Arts and Sciences Department of Biology Office of News Information Browse Articles Contact Us Community Photos UW Classifieds University Photography UW Experts Search UW Today Search Browse Categories Select Category Administrative Affairs Archive Arts and Entertainment Buildings and Grounds Education Engineering Environment For UW Employees Health and Medicine Honors and Awards Learning News Releases News Roundups Politics and Government Profiles Research Science Social Science Technology UW and the Community Latest Stories Ferroelectric switching seen in biological tissues 5 hours ago Zippy electric micro cars coming to campus for sustainability research 8 hours ago UW students electric hybrid car takes 2nd in international competition 3 days ago Global issues at play in book of study abroad student letters 5 days ago Related Stories 2014 Awards of Excellence recipients announced April 17 2014 News Digest Awards of Excellence program and reception Thursday Honor Estella Leopold June 11 2013 News Digest New employee housing Carlos Pellegrini installed as president Math Across
