2 professors at UC Riverside receive Guggenheim Fellowships
Date:4/26/2010

a href="http://www.plantbiology.ucr.edu/">Department of Botany and Plant Sciences. "He has also made significant contributions to UCR through his outstanding teaching, particularly his ability to explain complex subjects to a broad audience in an understandable and entertaining way. This award is well deserved!"

Ellstrand studies plant population genetics and is one of the country's foremost experts on plant gene flow, the movement of genes from one population to another. More recently, his research has come to focus on the evolution of invasiveness in plants. He was among the first to suggest that invasive species could evolve from relatively innocuous progenitors. His research group has found that hybridization (essentially interspecies gene flow) sometimes appears to play an important role in stimulating the evolution of new invasives.

He is the author of more than 100 peer-reviewed research papers. He is author also of the book Dangerous Liaisons? When Cultivated Plants Mate with Their Wild Relatives (John Hopkins University Press, 2003) and is scientific advisor to the movie "Basmati Blues."

Juan Felipe Herera:

"The Guggenheim Fellowship is a supreme honor for me," Herrera said. "Most of all, it is for my wife, Margarita Robles, my familia, my students, my department, UCR, our Inlandia communities, our schools, teachers, librarians and libraries, my mentors, my dear friends who wrote letters in my behalf, my editors and publishers, and it is for all those whose voice has been cut short and those whose voice is beginning to blossom.

"I am here to tell you that you have a beautiful voice. Live the promise that you are, cross the borders of silence into your hard-earned freedom. I also dedicate this award to my father, Felipe, who arrived in Colorado in the late 1800s in search of new horizons, and my mother, Lucha, a natural poet, who migrated to El Norte during the Mexican Revolution."
