Ian G. Simmons, a geographer of international distinction, is a Professor of Geography at the University of Durham, England. His research includes the study of the later Mesolithic and early Neolithic in their environmental setting on English uplands, where he has demonstrated the role of these early human communities in initiating some of today's characteristic landscape elements. His work also encompasses the long-term effects of human manipulation of the natural environment and its consequences for resource use and environmental change. Some of these concerns extend to environmental thought about such matters as justice and equity in a rapidly changing world. Simmons was elected a Fellow of the British Academy in 1997, one of Britain's premier awards for scholars. The award recognized his research into human environmental relations, past and future.
