The CSEE Early Career Award recognizes outstanding accomplishments and promising future research potential in ecology and evolution by scientists early in their careers. Each year one candidate is recognized with the Early Career Award. This year’s recipient is Dr. Sam Yeaman. Dr. Yeaman is interested in evolvability the maintenance of variation, and particularly evolution and adaptation in heterogeneous environments. Sam completed an undergraduate degree at Trent, and a PhD with Michael Whitlock at UBC. His work has appeared in a wide range of journals, including Evolution, Global Change Biology, PNAS and Science. Sam has joined the faculty at University of Calgary.

President's Award Lecture: Graham Bell
Presidents Lecture by Graham Bell. Can major ecological transitions be studied in the laboratory?

The CSEE President’s Award is the highest distinction conferred by the Society, and is given every two years to a Canadian scientist in recognition of outstanding scientific contributions that support the research objectives of the Society. Professor Graham Bell is the 2015 recipient of the Presidents Award. 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 several monographs and textbooks, most recently, The Evolution of Life (Oxford). Graham is well known to members, as past President of CSEE. He is currently President of the Royal Society of Canada.
