Jonathan Levine, a professor of ecology and evolutionary biology (EEB), has been named a permanent ESA Fellow “for research that fundamentally advances understanding of biological invasions and species coexistence, often by deploying creative, highly controlled experimental units across landscape-scale environmental gradients in natural communities and integrating field data with theoretical models.”

Malin Pinsky

Malin Pinsky, a visiting research collaborator in EEB and an associate professor of ecology, evolution and natural resources at Rutgers University, was named an Early Career Fellow for the next five years “for advancing fundamental understanding of the ecological and evolutionary consequences of global change for marine populations and communities, and for facilitating the use of this knowledge in conservation and public policy.”

Levine and Pinsky will be honored at the ESA Annual Meeting in August, held this year in Louisville, Kentucky.
