G. Evelyn Hutchinson Award
The G. Evelyn Hutchinson Award has been presented annually since 1982 to recognize excellence in any aspect of limnology or oceanography. The award is intended to symbolize the quality and innovations toward which the society strives and to remind its members of these goals. In lending his name to the award, Hutchinson asked that recipients be scientists who had made considerable contributions to knowledge, and whose future work promised a continuing legacy of scientific excellence. In 2009, this award is given to Michael Pace, For Sustained and outstanding contributions to understanding of vertical fluxes in lakes and oceans, trophic cascades in planktonic and microbial systems, assessment of comparative and experimental approaches in aquatic ecology, and synthesis of the status and future directions of ecosystem ecology.
