UC Riverside botanist receives Botanical Society of America's highest honor
Date:5/28/2010

RIVERSIDE, Calif. Darleen DeMason, a professor of botany in UC Riverside's Department of Botany and Plant Sciences, has been elected as one of this year's six Botanical Society of America (BSA) Merit Award recipients.

The BSA Merit Award is the society's highest honor, granted for "outstanding contributions to botanical science," recognizing truly exceptional scientists in plant biology. Some past Merit Award recipients have won the Nobel Prize, National Medal of Science or election to the prestigious National Academy of Sciences.

"I am deeply honored to have my name added to this botanical 'hall of fame' that has existed since 1956 along with those of other great scholars," DeMason said. "It is also very satisfying to have my work recognized by those who are most familiar with it and who are best able to assess it in the context of the discipline. I thank the mentors of my formative years and all the students and post-docs I have worked with throughout my career. I have learned so much from all of you."

DeMason joined the UCR faculty in 1978 immediately upon completion of her Ph.D. degree at UC Berkeley. She has received two previous national awards: the Centennial Award from the Botanical Society of America in 2006 and election as a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Sciences in 2009.

During her 30-year career DeMason has published 82 technical papers in peer-reviewed journals, 11 review papers, book chapters and symposium proceedings, and 23 semi-technical and non-technical papers.

She has worked on a range of topics in the past 30 years in her general area of expertise: mechanisms of plant development at the levels of the cell, tissue, organ and whole plant. For the past 15 years she has concentrated on st
