UVM Trio Named Ecological Society of America Fellows


Three trailblazing University of Vermont professors were named Fellows of the Ecological Society of America (ESA) today for outstanding contributions to the science of ecology. 

UVM’s trio of new ESA Fellows are: Aimée Classen and Taylor Ricketts (Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources), and Nicholas Gotelli (College of Arts and Sciences). All are Fellows of UVM’s Gund Institute for Environment.

UVM had more faculty honored as ESA Fellows today than any other institution. The Catamounts join a distinguished group of 22 new ESA fellows from Columbia University, University of California, and other leading institutions.  

“Today’s national recognition of these outstanding University of Vermont professors shows yet again how the environment is a core strength of this great university,” said Patty Prelock, University of Vermont provost. “We couldn’t be more proud of these pioneering teacher-scholars for their contributions to real-world problems in ecology.”
