Please join me in congratulating Kathleen Treseder, the Howard A. Schneiderman Endowed Chair and Professor in the Department of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology. She has just received the British Ecological Society’s Marsh Award for Climate Change Research. This prestigious global honor annually recognizes an ecologist whose scientific investigations are making a significant impact on the climate crisis.
Professor Treseder is a leading expert on the role of fungi in climate change, calling them the “unsung heroes” of global warming. Fungi have the potential to slow or speed the process, but they are often overlooked by environmental models. Thanks in great part to Professor Treseder, scientists now know much more about various fungal species. She and her colleagues are analyzing this information with the goal of improving climate change predictions so society can take more effective action.
Congratulations to Professor Treseder on this award and her dedication to shaping the future for the better! Sincerely,
Frank LaFerla, PhD
