The American Society of Plant Biologists announces 2007 awards
Date:9/6/2007

ng researchers. It is a monetary award made annually and is given for outstanding investigations in the field of plant biology by a scientist who is under 40 years of age on January 1 of the year of presentation, or who is fewer than 10 years from the granting of the doctoral degree. The recipient is invited to address the Society at the annual meeting the following year.

The 2007 winner is Samuel C. Zeeman, ETH Zurich, Switzerland, for pioneering research leading to the discovery of new proteins and pathways in starch synthesis and degradation in leaves. This is a topic that is of broad interest to plant biologists and also has relevance to food processing and human health and nutrition.

Charles Reid Barnes Life Membership Award This is the oldest award, established in 1925 at the first annual meeting of the Society through the generosity of Dr. Charles A. Shull. It honors Dr. Charles Reid Barnes, the first professor of plant physiology at the University of Chicago. It is an annual award for meritorious work in plant biology; it provides a life membership in the Society to an individual who is at least sixty years old. John S. Boyer, University of Delaware is the 2007 winner.

Corresponding Membership Award This honor, initially given in 1932, provides life membership and Society publications to distinguished plant biologists from outside the United States. The honor is conferred by election on the annual ballot. The 2007 winners are: J. Derek Bewley, University of Guelph, Canada; Wilhelm Gruissem, ETH Zurich, Switzerland; and Patricia M. Lon, Instituto de Biotecnologia, UNAM.

Excellence in Teaching Award This award was initiated in 1988 to recognize outstanding teaching in plant biology. It is an award to be made not more than triennially in recognition of excellence in teaching, leadership in curricular development, or authorship of effective teaching materials in the science of plant biology.
