FAIRBANKS (AP) -- Two University of Alaska Fairbanks scientists have been named 2001 Aldo Leopold Leadership Fellows. The fellowships are designed to help scientists become better communicators of scientific information.
The fellows are Brenda Norcross, an associate professor of fisheries oceanography at the Institute of Marine Science, and Richard Boone, associate professor of ecosystem ecology at the Institute of Arctic Biology. They were among 22 award winners chosen by Oregon State University, which operates the program on behalf of the Ecological Society of America.
The duo will travel to Tuscon, Ariz., and Washington, D.C., for training, according to UAF. The fellows learn how to write and speak effectively about their work to the public, media, lawmakers, research funding agencies and others.
