Date:7/14/2008

The Ecological Society of America (ESA) will present societal awards to eight distinguished ecologists at the 93rd Annual ESA meeting in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on Monday, August 4, 2008.

Eminent Ecologist Award: Michael Rosenzweig

Michael Rosenzweig of the University of Arizona is the recipient of this year's Eminent Ecologist Award, given to a senior ecologist in recognition of an outstanding body of ecological work or sustained ecological contributions of extraordinary merit. Over his 38-year career, Rosenzweig has been the discoverer and creator of some of the seminal concepts in ecological thought, including the stability of predator-prey dynamics, the relationship between primary production and evapotranspiration, theories of habitat selection and, perhaps most importantly, the competitive speciation hypothesis. His vision of promoting risky and innovative science led him to establish two scientific journals, Evolutionary Ecology and Evolutionary Ecology Research, and become an advocate and spokesperson for the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition. Rosenzweig served on two committees of the National Academy of Sciences to develop early warning indicators of environmental health and identify the most important challenges in environmental science. Rosenzweig has edited two books and written three.

MacArthur Award: Monica Turner

Monica Turner of the University of Wisconsin-Madison will receive the 2008 Robert H. MacArthur Award. The MacArthur Award is given biannually to an established mid-career ecologist for meritorious contributions to ecology with the expectation of continued outstanding ecological research. Turner is one of the founders of the discipline of landscape ecology; her seminal publications on the subject led to the first comprehensive textbook on the subject in 2001. Her work in Yellowstone National Park explores the long-term vegetation dynamics in the context of ch
