Boston University biologist honored for leadership in estuarine education

(Boston) -- Ivan Valiela, a professor in the Marine Biology Program at Boston University's Department of Biology, has been named to receive the William Niering Outstanding Educator Award from the Estuarine Research Federation. The award will be conferred during the federation's 18th biennial conference to be held in Norfolk, Va., October 16-21.

During his more than 35 years as a researcher and educator, Valiela has, according to his nomination papers, advised more than 50 master's and doctoral students and produced more than 200 publications, many seminal to the field of estuarine research. Valiela also has contributed to education in this field through various books he has authored, including "Marine Ecological Processes," a long-time key text in the discipline; "Doing Science," a compendium and guide to what professional scientists need to know about doing their work; and the upcoming "Global Coastal Change," a review of the history and facts related to the human-driven agents of ecological change affecting the world's coasts.

Described as "an estuarine- and life-educator" who has "always been about the real world," Valiela researches the links between humans and coastal environments and investigates what those links tell us about the fundamental principles controlling how coastal ecosystems function.

Valiela conducts a good deal of his research nearly from the back door of his laboratories in Woods Hole -- studying the structure, function, and effects of eutrophication on the salt marshes of Cape Cod and investigating the consequences that the Cape's expanding urbanization has on its groundwater and, by extension, the near-shore waters into which the groundwater flows. His research also is conducted at sites in Mexico, Argentina, Portugal, Italy, Spain, as well as Puerto Rico, California, Florida, and other sites within the U.S.

Established in 2000, the Estuarine Research Federation's William A. Niering Outstanding Educator
