Four IU professors are 2004 Guggenheim Fellows

hopes the book will put to rest speculative and unsupported opinions about the nature of plant species as well as what types of evolutionary processes are likely to produce new species.

Beckwith, a world-renowned expert on Tibet, Nepal and other political entities in central Asia, will use his Guggenheim award to write a comprehensive history of central Eurasia.

Folklorist Brown plans to revisit and recast the beloved English and Scottish ballads written by 19th-century polymath Francis James Child.

Since 1925, the Guggenheim Foundation has granted about $228 million in fellowships to more than 15,000 Americans and U.S. resident aliens. Recent Guggenheim fellows among IU's total of 113 are biologist Rudolf Raff, poet Kevin Young and composer Claude Baker. IU has had at least one fellow each year since 1998.

Rieseberg also has been named to receive the first-ever Stebbins Medal by the Vienna, Austria-based International Association for Plant Taxonomy. The medal, which will be awarded at the May meeting of the International Organization of Plant Biosystematists in Valencia, Spain, recognizes the previous year's "outstanding article or book about plant systematics and evolution," according to IAPT secretary-treasurer Tod Stuessy. A committee of five professional plant evolutionary biologists awarded the honor to Rieseberg and coauthors of "Major ecological transitions in wild sunflowers facilitated by hybridization," published last year in the journal Science.
