Gallery of Honorees

The SBCS Statute provides for the distinction and tribute to outstanding people in Soil Science in Brazil. For this, there is a special category of honorary members, in addition to the awarding of the Antonio Carlos Moniz Award.

On this page, you will see the gallery of all SBCS honorees. By clicking on the names, you will be able to know a little more about them. Information on some honorees is still being obtained by SBCS and any contribution will be welcome.


Honorary Members

The Honorary Membership category symbolizes SBCS’s homage and recognition to people who have made a notable contribution to the development of Soil Science in Brazil.

Honorary members are appointed to the Executive Secretariat by at least one third of the members of the Directing Council, or by the boards of two Specialized Divisions of SBCS or three Regional or State Nucleus, or by a group of 30 (thirty) effective members.

Meritorious Members
