20 scientists selected as Aldo Leopold Leadership Fellows

Twenty outstanding academic environmental scientists from throughout the U.S. have been selected as Aldo Leopold Leadership Fellows for 2004.

Aldo Leopold Leadership Fellowships provide scientists with intensive communications and leadership training to help them communicate scientific information effectively to non-scientific audiences, especially policy makers, the media, business leaders and the public. The Fellows are selected through a competitive application process. Fellows have outstanding scientific qualifications, demonstrated leadership ability and a strong interest in communicating science beyond traditional academic audiences.

The 2004 Fellows represent a broad range of environmental science disciplines, including environmental engineering, wildlife veterinary medicine, tropical forestry, marine ecology and environmental economics.

"We are absolutely thrilled with the 2004 cohort of Leopold Leadership Fellows," said Jane Lubchenco, Distinguished Professor of Zoology at Oregon State University who co-founded the Aldo Leopold Leadership Program and co-chairs the steering committee. "As individuals, each is outstanding in his or her field, and as a group, they provide a wonderful mix of disciplines and potential for new and interesting collaborations. They will learn a lot in the training sessions, but they also have a lot to offer each other and to the Leopold Leadership Program."

The 2004 Fellows join 60 other outstanding environmental scientists who previously received Leopold Leadership Fellowships and participated in the training, including Bill Schlesinger, Dean of the Nicholas School of the Environment and Earth Sciences at Duke University, Pamela Matson, Dean of the School of Earth Sciences at Stanford University and Jianguo (Jack) Liu, professor in the Department of Fisheries and Wildlife at Michigan State University.
