Date:3/23/2009

WASHINGTON, DC The American Institute of Biological Sciences (AIBS) has selected Adam Roddy, a graduate student at the University of California at Berkeley, and Anna Maria Stewart, a graduate student at the State University of New York (SUNY) - College of Environmental Science and Forestry, to receive the 2009 AIBS Emerging Public Policy Leadership Award (EPPLA).

AIBS is a scientific society based in Washington, DC, with a membership consisting of roughly 5,000 individual scientists and nearly 200 professional societies and scientific organizations. The combined membership of the latter is approximately 250,000 individuals.

Roddy and Stewart receive a certificate, membership in AIBS, several AIBS publications, including Communicating Science: A Primer for Working with the Media and a subscription to the journal BioScience. Additionally, AIBS will bring Roddy and Stewart to Washington, DC, in April to attend a federal research budget briefing, meetings with members of Congress, and a reception. The events are in conjunction with the annual Biological and Ecological Sciences Coalition (BESC) Congressional Visits Day.

"I am excited to participate in the Congressional Visits Day becauseas a scientist, I want to emphasize the importance of funding basic research because of its application to environmental policy and its educational value," said Roddy. "A strong interface between scientists and politicians fosters the development of sound policies."

Roddy's Ph.D. research in integrative biology examines flower physiology and phenology or the timing of development in relation to climate. Roddy is working to understand how flower water requirements may relate to broader ecosystem dynamics, such as the water cycle. Roddy has been active in outreac
