Zoe Cardon is Elected Fellow of the Ecological Society of America

MBL Senior Scientist Zoe G. Cardon has been elected a life Fellow of the Ecological Society of America (ESA), the pre-eminent professional society for ecologists.

Fellows are members of the ESA who are honored for “outstanding contributions to a wide range of fields served by ESA, including … those that advance or apply ecological knowledge in academics, government, non-profit organizations, and the broader society.”

Cardon, who joined the faculty of the MBL’s Ecosystems Center in 2008, focuses her research on dynamic interactions among plants, microbes, and soils, especially in the rhizosphere [the soil volume surrounding plant roots]. Because the function of this below-ground system is difficult to observe without digging it up, Cardon and colleagues have developed innovative approaches to study rhizosphere processes using stable isotopes, genetically engineered microbiosensors, mathematical modeling, and subterranean imaging.
