Dr. Julie Jastrow, a senior scientist at Argonne National Laboratory, 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 in early November. The Clark Lectureship is the highest honor given by the society in recognition of work in soil biology and biochemistry. Each year a distinguished scholar is selected from around the world to present a lecture that emphasizes new frontiers in soil biology of interest to teachers, researchers, and students and 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.
