Honors and Awards
On behalf of the Department of Biological Sciences I am pleased to announce Alexandra Anderson as this year’s recipient of the Michael W Butler Ecological Research Award. Allie is studying the effects of climate change on the wintering biology of American kestrels, and whether different wintering strategies have carry-over effects on mate selection and nesting phenology. In addition to her thesis research activities, Allie has served as both a TA and GK-12 fellow at Boise State, mentored undergraduates in research, assisted with grad program activities in the department, and volunteered at the Idaho Bird Observatory. Most recently, Allie launched a “Blogging with Biologists” program between Boise State and fifth grade students at a school in Wisconsin. For all these reasons, Allie is a very deserving recipient of the award. Congratulations Allie!
Also, I would like to thank all of the graduate students who applied for this year’s award. As in previous years, the selection was a difficult one for the committee. We continue to be impressed by the quality of research being done by our graduate students, and the commitment they’ve demonstrated toward the department, their peers, and the scientific community.
