To Katie Brakora on her Fulbright award that will support a 10-month visit to Kenya where she will do museum work at the National Museums of Kenya, perform field observations and photography of juvenile spiral-horned antelope in parks across the country, and make a foray into the morphology of fossil taxa of the same group.
To Lorraine Casazza, who has been awarded a Geological Society of America Research Grant and a highly competitive award from the Paleontological Society, both to support her work in Egypt where she is conducting isotopic studies of the foraminiferal shells of Nummulites.
To Maya DeVries, who received a Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute Short-term Research Fellowship. Maya will be at the Naos Island Laboratories, Bocas del Toro Laboratory, and Galeta Marine Laboratory studying stomatopod feeding ecology.
To Randy Irmis and Jann Vendetti as the recipients of the 2008 Louderback Awards in paleontology. Annually the Louderback Fund makes awards to recognize both the academic accomplishments and contributions to museum and departmental activities of students in paleontology and the earth and planetary sciences.
To Joey Pakes, who received an NSF Graduate Fellowship to support her research on snails and remipedes in cave systems. She will be joining Professor Iliffe's team from Texas A&M in the Yucatan peninsula this summer to explore caves and collect samples for isotopic analysis back at Berkeley.
To Nick Pyenson on his postdoctoral research fellowship from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) to study the biomechanics and diversification of lunge-feeding baleen whales at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver.
