2015 Dr. Graham Bell

Professor Graham Bell (McGill University) is the 2015 recipient of the President’s Award for Research Excellence in Ecology and Evolution. The CSEE President’s Award is the highest distinction conferred by the Society, and is given every second year to a Canadian scientist in recognition of outstanding scientific contributions that support the research objectives of the Society. Professor Bell is an evolutionary biologist with broad interests, including the evolution of sexual reproduction, the maintenance of variation, and adaptation to changing environments. He is the author of numerous monographs and textbooks, most recently, The Evolution of Life (Oxford). Graham is a founding member and past president of CSEE, and is currently President of the Royal Society of Canada. At the 2015 CSEE meetings in Saskatoon, Dr. Bell delivered the President’s Award Lecture, “Can major ecological transitions be studied in the laboratory?” The President’s Award recipient is invited to publish a review in Proceedings of the Royal Society of London (B).
