anging fire regimes, grazing by elk, and the complex interactions of plant roots, soil, microbes and nitrogen. Turner will be invited to prepare an address for presentation at the ESA 2009 Annual Meeting and for publication in the society's flagship journal, Ecology.

Cooper Award: Campbell Webb

Campbell Webb of the Arnold Arboretum at Harvard University will receive this year's William Skinner Cooper Award for his paper, "Phylogenetics and community ecology," published in the Annual Review of Ecology and Systematics in 2002. The Cooper Award is given to honor an outstanding contribution to the fields of geobotany, physiographic ecology, plant succession or the distribution of plants along environmental gradients. In their paper, Webb and coauthors David Ackerly of the University of California at Berkeley and Mark McPeek of Dartmouth University outlined methods for integrating evolutionary histories in studies of the structure, function and evolution of ecological communities.

Mercer Award: Jonathan Chase

Jonathan Chase of Washington University in St. Louis will receive this year's George Mercer Award for his paper, "Drought mediates the importance of stochastic community assembly," published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences in 2007. The Mercer Award is given for an outstanding recently-published ecological research paper by a young scientist. Chase's work represents one of the first rigorous tests of the theory that ecological processes vary widely based on existing environmental conditions. His paper discusses neutral and niche partitioning theory and sets a framework for predictive ecological studies.
