The Ecological Society of America has named Rick Lindroth, entomology professor and CALS Associate Dean for Research, a 2016 ESA Fellow. The Society’s fellows program recognizes the many ways in which their members contribute to ecological research and discovery, communication, education and pedagogy, and management and policy.
Lindroth was elected for his pioneering research on gene-by-environment interactions and physiological tradeoffs in plant chemistry as well as his work on global-change impacts on forest ecosystems. His interests are broad, spanning the range from biochemical to ecosystem ecology, with a strong evolutionary perspective.
