Ecological Society of America announces 2012 award recipients
Date:6/28/2012

The Ecological Society of America (ESA) will present eight societal awards recognizing outstanding contributions to ecology during ESA's 97th annual meeting in Portland, Oregon. The meeting, which will be held from August 5 10, is expected to draw over 4,500 scientists from around the globe to share their research and ideas.

Eminent Ecologist Award: Robert Naiman, University of Washington, Seattle

This award is given to a senior ecologist in recognition of an outstanding body of ecological work or sustained ecological contributions of extraordinary merit.

Among his many contributions, Robert Naiman played a key role in establishing a national ecological research program in freshwater science at the Environmental Protection Agency and the National Science Foundation through his leadership of a project that resulted in publication of The Freshwater Imperative in 1995. In addition to Naiman's influential work on freshwater ecology, he has also made fundamental contributions to the study of riparian systems and the concept of ecotones. Naiman has also served as an important mentor to many graduate students, postdocs and colleagues.

Distinguished Service Citation: Janet Lanza, University of Arkansas, Little Rock

The Distinguished Service Citation recognizes long and distinguished service to ESA, to the larger scientific community or to the larger purpose of ecology in the public welfare.

ESA recognizes Janet Lanza for her two decades of distinguished service to ESA as its Book Review Editor. Through a good eye for books worth reviewing, a familiarity with the discipline and a keen and discriminating awareness of the pool of book reviewers, Lanza has produced a regular stream of high-quality reviews that span and transcend ecology.
