Clark selected as Peter Raven Award recipient

Dr. Lynn Clark, professor in the Department of Ecology, Evolution, and Organismal Biology, was selected to receive the Peter Raven Award for 2016 from the American Society of Plant Taxonomists. The Peter Raven Award is given by the American Society of Plant Taxonomists to a plant systematist who has made exceptional efforts at outreach to non-scientists.

The Honors and Awards Committee was particularly impressed with Clark's wide range of outreach activities including those with the American Bamboo Society, via extension and herbarium curation, as well as her “The Grasses of Iowa” website and the book “Grasses in Your Pocket.”

The award will be presented at the Botany 2016 meeting in Savannah, Georgia, July 30-August 3, 2016.
