Stephanie M. Carlson, assistant professor of environmental science, policy, and management, is among this year’s recipients of the American Society of Naturalists’ Young Investigator Award, which is awarded by the Society to recognize outstanding and promising work by early career researchers.

The award was conferred at the 2010 meeting in Portland, Oregon, and included a presentation in the Young Investigator symposium.

Carlson presented on the topic of “Phenotypic selection in the wild”, which included an overview of her research examining the ecological context for natural selection, temporal patterns of selection in the wild, and recent research examining how natural selection influences ecological dynamics, namely ecosystem processes.
