BC researchers named fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science
Three 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’s Steven Hallam, John Klironomos and Daniel Pauly are among 388 members recognized by the AAAS today because of their "scientifically or socially distinguished efforts" to advance science or its applications. Six researchers at Canadian institutions are among the new fellows.
Steven Hallam, Microbiology and Immunology, Faculty of Science
