AUSTIN, Texas — Four faculty members in the College of Natural Sciences have been elected fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).

The 2011 fellows from the college are:

Chen was recognized for distinguished contributions to the field of genetics and agriculture, particularly for biological understanding and application of polyploidy and hybrid vigor in plant improvement.

Brent Iverson, professor and chairman of chemistry and biochemistry in the College of Natural Sciences. Iverson was recognized for innovations in the fields of supramolecular chemistry and protein engineering, and in the teaching of organic chemistry.

Edward Marcotte, professor of chemistry and biochemistry in the College of Natural Sciences. Marcotte was recognized for distinguished contributions in the area of computational, systems and synthetic biology.

Michael Ryan, professor of integrative biology in the College of Natural Sciences. Ryan was recognized for distinguished contributions to the fields of animal behavior and evolution, especially to studies of sexual selection and the evolution and mechanisms of communication.

This year 539 members were elected fellows of the AAAS because of their scientifically or socially distinguished efforts to advance science or its applications. New fellows will be inducted Feb. 18 during the 2012 AAAS annual meeting in Vancouver, British Columbia.
