ASU ecologist receives prestigious global award for water research
Date:7/12/2012

TEMPE, Ariz. - Arizona State University professor James Elser today received the G. Evelyn Hutchinson Award, the most prestigious global award in the aquatic sciences, at the July 2012 Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography (ASLO) meeting on the shores of ancient Lake Biwa, Otsu, Shiga, Japan. The Hutchinson Award is presented annually to recognize a scientist's previous five to 10 years of excellence in limnology (the study of inland waters) or oceanography.

In addition, the organization has elected Elser as its next president. The largest international freshwater and ocean science professional society in the world, ASLO serves more than 4,000 members, including practicing scientists, engineers, and educators. Elser will serve a six-year term, beginning with two years as president-elect. He will spend the following two years as president, and two more years as past-president.

"I was astounded to receive the Hutchinson award, as the list of previous recipients contains many of my scientific heroes," said Elser, Regents' Professor and Parents Association Professor in ASU's School of Life Sciences, in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. "It's very hard to believe that my name will be added to this list. I am deeply honored not only to receive the award, but also to serve as president for an organization that has nurtured my career since graduate school. It's the scientific society to which I feel most closely connected."

"Jim has this 'rock star' personality," said Deborah Bronk, ASLO's outgoing president and professor at Virginia Institute of Marine Science, College of William & Mary. "He's really gone out and promoted his ideas to a lot of different groups. He's engaging people on a global level and is a skilled ambassador for limnology."

Elser is particularly recognized for his outstanding work in pioneering a cutting-edge sub-discipline of ecology - ecological stoichiometry - which is the study o
