Jim Kitchell Wins American Society of Limnology and Oceanography A.C. Redfield Award
The American Society of Limnology and Oceanography (ASLO ) has announced that Jim Kitchell is the 2010 winner of the A.C. Redfield Award. The award will be presented at the annual meeting in Santa Fe in June.
The award citation reads:
"To James F. Kitchell, For field-changing contributions in the areas of fish ecology and fisheries, trophic dynamics, and understanding the role of fish in aquatic ecosystems."
The Lifetime Achievement Award was first presented in 1994 to recognize and honor major, long-term achievements in the fields of limnology and oceanography, including research, education and service to the community and society. In 2004, the ASLO Board renamed the Lifetime Achievement Award in honor of Alfred C. Redfield. Emphasis in selection is given to established aquatic scientists whose work is recognized for its importance and long-term influence. Among the former winners is UW Professor Emeritus John Magnuson (2002).
