AAAS names UBC ecologists as fellows

UBC-okanaganThree UBC ecologists who study the natural world at very different scales – from marine ecosystems, to plant and soil systems, to microbial communities –have been named fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). AAAS is the world’s largest general scientific society, and the publisher of the journal Science.

UBC Okanagan Campus ecologist John Klironomos was recognized with UBC colleagues Steven Hallam and Daniel Pauly by the AAAS because of their scientifically or socially distinguished efforts to advance science. Six Canadians are among the new fellows.

Klironomos is Associate Dean, research and strategic planning, of the Irving K Barber School of Arts and Sciences at UBC's Okanagan campus. His contributions to the field of plant and soil ecology include empirical studies on plant-microbe interactions and the structuring of plant communities.

Hallam, Microbiology and Immunology, Faculty of Science, Vancouver campus is cited for distinguished contributions to the fields of environmental genomics and microbial ecology, particularly for metabolic pathway reconstruction of uncultivated microorganisms mediating fundamental biogeochemical processes. Pauly, Fisheries Centre, Faculty of Science, Vancouver campus is cited for distinguished contributions to marine ecology and fisheries management, particularly in the tropics, and for developing concepts, software, and databases used throughout the world.
