Evolutionary biologist inducted into American Academy of Arts and Sciences
Date:10/21/2011

at Massachusetts Institute of Technology; and Sir Adam Roberts, one of the foremost experts on international strategic affairs.

New members who attended the induction include, in the sciences: cancer researcher Clara Bloomfield, who proved that adult acute leukemia can be cured; Julio Frenk, former minister of health for Mexico; and Nobel laureate and chemist Ei-Ichi Negishi.

"Induction recognizes extraordinary individual achievement and marks a commitment on the part of new members to provide fundamental, non-partisan knowledge for addressing today's complex challenges," said American Academy President Leslie C. Berlowitz.

At UC Riverside, Reznick studies evolution as a contemporary process and performs experiments on natural populations of organisms. He also studies how complex traits evolve in organisms. In addition, his lab studies the evolution of animal life cycles and conducts experiments for testing predictions from different facets of modern evolutionary theory in natural populations of guppies (small fresh-water fish). Currently, the lab is engaged in experimental studies of the interaction between ecological and evolutionary processes.

In 2003, he was a recipient of the prestigious E. O. Wilson Prize from the American Society of Naturalists, which honors an active investigator who has made significant contributions to the knowledge of a particular ecosystem or group of organisms.

He is the author of "The Origin Then and Now: An Interpretive Guide to the Origin of Species" (Princeton University Press, 2009), which makes Darwin's "Origin of Species" more accessible by explaining its historical context, and converting it into more modern terms.
