BERKELEY – Peter H. Quail, professor of plant biology in the College of Natural Resources, has been named a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).

The fellowship honors Quail “for far-reaching contributions to plant biology through pioneering work on phytochromes.”

Election as a fellow of AAAS, the world's largest general scientific society and publisher of the journal Science, is an honor bestowed upon members by their peers. This year’s 308 new fellows were elevated to this rank “because of their efforts to advance science or its applications that are deemed scientifically or socially distinguished,” according to the society.

Four additonal UC Berkeley faculty were named AAAS fellows this year.
