  Institute for Advanced Study: Press Releases: BIOLOGIST SIR ROBERT MAY TO LECTURE AT INSTITUTE FOR ADVANCED STUDY
May studies various aspects of the way populations and communities are structured, and how they respond to change, both natural and human-induced.
In 1996 the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences awarded May the Crafoord Prize in the biosciences, with emphasis on ecology; the Crafoord Prize was established for basic research in fields not covered by the Nobel prizes.
In his position as Chief Scientific Advisor to the British government (1995-2000), May was deeply involved in many topics at the intersection of biology and public policy, ranging from debates over biodiversity to the epidemiology of AIDS.

Robert May was a professional cook (most recipe books of the period were from the pens of amateurs, or women, or reproduced household collections).
There is a modern introduction which offers new facts about May's life and work; and there is a useful glossary of words, terms and materials.

 Lord (Robert) May of Oxford
Lord May obtained his doctorate in theoretical physics from the University of Sydney at the age of 23 in 1959, researching that field there for the next 13 years until in due course he switched disciplines to population biology at Princeton University in the United States, where he remained a further 15 years.
One of Lord May's major contributions was to be the first to build a model that includes environmental stochasticity and spatial heterogeneity in studies of population dynamics, and thereby contributing to our ability to formulate environmental policies.
Lord May has used his mathematical modeling to explain the current state of biodiversity and warn that the risk of species extinction is currently at an historical high.

 Sir Robert May annotated
The deluge of global warming propaganda in the establishment media appears to derive its authority from a paper by Sir Robert May, President of the Royal Society.
The indications from climate models are that the number of deep Atlantic depressions is expected to increase; by the middle of the next century, the incidence of gales across the country is predicted to increase on average by 30% if no major global actions are taken to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases.
More generally, the world may also be affected by migration of populations from areas severely affected by changes in sea level.

 Robert May
Fiengo and May focus on the beliefs speakers have about the semantic values of linguistic expressions, exploring the genesis of these beliefs and the explanatory roles they play in how speakers use and understand language.
Fiengo and May examine the resources available to speakers for generating linguistic beliefs, considering how linguistic theory characterizes the formal, syntactic identity of the expressions linguistic beliefs are about and how this affects speakers' beliefs about coreference.
This has direct consequences, examined in detail by Fiengo and May, for explaining the informativeness of identity statements and the possibilities for substitution in attributions of propositional attitudes, cases in which speakers' beliefs about coreference play a central role.
