Meelis was awarded with an Estonian state decoration


Leading to the celebration of the Estonian Independence Day on 24th February, President Alar Karis honoured 167 people with state decorations, among them several scientists. We are very happy that Meelis Pärtel received an Order of the White Star IV class for his biodiversity research! This order is bestowed on Estonian citizens to give recognition for services rendered in state public service or local government and on foreigners for services rendered to the Estonian state. Congratulations, Meelis!
