Baylor honours Steve Davis
Pepperdine plant ecologist Steve Davis received Baylor University's Robert Foster Cherry Award for Great Teaching. The $200,000 Cherry Award is the only national teaching award presented by a college or university. Having seen Davis speak, I can attest that he's an engaging speaker who really manages to convey ideas well. Although it was several years ago, I remember his talk (on chaparral fire ecology) vividly.
