As a quantitative ecologist, Nigel Barlow made significant contributions to our understanding of the dynamics of New Zealand's ecosystems, especially in the context of understanding animal population dynamics.  He won the NZ Ecological Society Award (now the Te Tohu Taiao award) in 1986 for his sustained contributions to applied ecology in NZ. The Nigel Barlow fund is derived from a generous bequest made by Nigel, and is designed to provide support to international (including Australian) students studying ecology in New Zealand.  The fund provides support for direct costs associated with research such as, but not limited to, field costs and analytical expenses, but excluding fees, living expenses and conference costs. Applicants must be enrolled in a NZ university for postgraduate study
