UCSB professor and director receives two national awards

(Portland, Ore.) Two national awards are being presented this summer to Jim Reichman, director of the National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis (NCEAS), based at the University of California, Santa Barbara, where he is also a professor in the Department of Ecology, Evolution and Marine Biology.

The 2004 Distinguished Service Citation from the Ecological Society of America recognizes Reichman for long and distinguished service to ESA, to the scientific community, and to the larger purpose of ecology in the public welfare. It will be presented on Monday, August 2, at the society's national meeting in Portland, Ore. The award salutes Reichman for his career of service, including his directorship of NCEAS. "Clearly its present role and prominence reflects Jim's efforts, imagination and leadership," said the committee. "Under Jim's guidance, NCEAS has become one of the most valuable resources for the environmental science community, not only in the U.S. but also internationally."

NCEAS, initiated in 1995 under UCSB professors William Murdoch and Michael Goodchild, was originally expected to bring in 500 visiting ecologists over five years for various lengths of time, explained Sandy Andelman, deputy director of NCEAS. However, the Center has hosted 700 visitors per year over nine years, and the National Science Foundation (NSF) has requested a renewal proposal that would extend funding beyond the original 11 years. "The model has been successful beyond what anybody ever imagined," she said, noting that Reichman has worked hard to make NCEAS an academic community center, rather than an exclusively discipline-oriented endeavor. The program has been so successful under Reichman's guidance that the NSF has adopted the model for other disciplines, said Andelman.

Also this summer, Reichman received the premier research award in mammalogy, the C. Hart Merriam Award of the American Society of Mammalogists (ASM). This award, presented
