The field selected was "coevolution - the mutual adaption of organism populations in the natural environment". The prizewinner, Professor Daniel H. Janzen, Philadelphia, USA was chosen " for his imaginative and stimulating research into coevolutionary connections and processes, through which numerous researchers have been inspired to further work in this field" . At a ceremony on October 3, 1984, the rewarded work was presented and Professor Janzen received his prize and the Crafoord medal in gold from the hands of the donor, Mrs Anna-Greta Crafoord.
