Anne Yoder Named a Guggenheim Fellow

Anne Yoder is among 173 scholars and artists to receive a Guggenheim Fellowship for 2018. These fellowships recognize "individuals who have already demonstrated exceptional capacity for productive scholarship or exceptional creative ability in the arts." Prof. Yoder was recognized for her research on "how the myriad forces of climate, geography, genetics, and ecological interactions have converged to generate the unique and incredibly diverse biota of Madagascar."  Yoder is stepping down after 12 years directing the Duke Lemur Center and will use the fellowship to fund her return to full-time research in integrative evolutionary genetics. Congratulations, Anne!
