nd co-director of the World Bank's formal report on the intersection of climate change and economic development. She has been an effective advocate for the application of sound ecological science to a wide range of environmental problems and, as dean, she has developed a new kind of cross-cutting education focused on today's environmental challenges.

Mercer Award: Meghan Duffy and Spencer Hall
This year's George Mercer Award is given to Meghan Duffy and Spencer Hall for their paper "Selective predation and rapid evolution can jointly dampen effects of parasites on Daphnia populations," published in American Naturalist in 2008. The Mercer Award is given for an outstanding recently-published ecological research paper by a young scientist. The researchers' work defines the processes by which two species of parasites affect their host, Daphnia, in different ways. They showed that only outbreaks of the bacterium, and not the fungal parasite, influenced Daphnia population dynamics in natural lakes. The study communicated two fundamental messages for ecology: Evolution within an ecological framework can alter species interactions and examining parasites within a food web is essential to understanding the full extent of their dynamics.

Cooper Award: Jacquelyn Gill, John Williams, Stephen T. Jackson, Katherine Lininger and Guy Robinson
Jacquelyn Gill, John Williams, Stephen T. Jackson, Katherine Lininger and Guy Robinson will receive this year's William Skinner Cooper Award, given to honor an outstanding contribution to the field of geobotany, physiographic ecology, plant succession or the distribution of plants along environmental gradients. The paper, "Pleistocene megafaunal collapse preceded novel plant communities and enhanced fire regimes," was published in Science in 2009 and contributes to the fundamental understanding of ecological history in eastern North America. The researchers used the fungus Sporormiella found in animal
