Congratulations to two SEAS faculty, who recently received significant recognition for their work:

As most of you will know, the AAAS recognizes “those whose efforts on behalf of the advancement of science or its applications are scientifically or socially distinguished…and for their extraordinary achievements across disciplines.”

Bill is receiving the well-deserved honor for advancing society's understanding of ecosystem function through advanced modeling, particularly nutrient cycling and carbon balance in forests and wetlands and their responses to human-driven change.
