Soil Science Society honors Jastrow
Senior Scientist Julie Jastrow will deliver the Francis E. Clark Distinguished Lecture on Frontiers in Soil Biology at the 2010 Annual Meeting of the Soil Science Society of America, the highest honor given by the society in recognition of work in soil biology and biochemistry.
Each year, a distinguished scholar is selected from across the world to present a lecture that emphasizes new frontiers in soil biology of interest to teachers, researchers and students that addresses the importance of soil biology to agricultural, environmental or socioeconomic issues.
Jastrow was chosen as the 15th Clark Lecturer for her significant contributions to the understanding of plant-soil interactions and carbon and nutrient dynamics. Jastrow’s research is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Biological and Environmental Research.
An abstract for Jastrow's presentation is available on the ASA, CSSA, and SSSA 2010 International Annual Meetings website.
