Rick Lindroth, entomology, has been selected as the 2009 recipient of the Silverstein-Simeone Lecture award by the International Society for Chemical Ecology. This is the highest honor that the society awards. It is given to recognize outstanding or current work at the frontiers of chemical ecology. Lindroth has been very productive for over 20 years on a diverse array of ecological and evolutionary questions, with a focus on plant-herbivore interactions. The awards committee was particularly excited about his recent pioneering contributions to the chemistry of global change and the chemistry of “genes to ecosystems” ecology. As recipient of this award, Lindroth will present the Silverstein-Simeone Lecture at the society’s 2009 meeting in Switzerland.
