The Ecological Society of America (ESA) is pleased to announce its 2014 fellows. The Society's fellows program recognizes the many ways in which our members contribute to ecological research and discovery, communication, education and pedagogy, and to management and policy.
ESA fellows and early career fellows are listed on the ESA Fellows page.
Fellows are members who have made outstanding contributions to a wide range of fields served by ESA, including, but not restricted to those that advance or apply ecological knowledge in academics, government, non-profit organizations and the broader society. They are elected for life.
Early career fellows are members typically within eight years of receiving their Ph.D. (or other terminal degree) who have begun making and show promise of continuing to make outstanding contributions to a wide range of fields served by ESA. They are elected for five years.
ESA established its fellows program in 2012.
Awards Committee Chair Alan Hastings says that the program's goals are to honor its members and to support their competitiveness and advancement to leadership positions in the Society, at their institutions and in broader society.
Kudos to all this year's ESA Fellows!
