    Throughout her 75-plus years at the Academy of Natural Sciences, Ruth M. Patrick, PhD, pioneered the study of freshwater and the organisms that depend on it. She proved that biological diversity holds the key to understanding the environmental problems affecting an ecosystem. Her research enabled her to provide policymakers with accurate information about the environment and the benefits derived from its protection. Her tireless efforts to raise awareness about this crucial issue motivated generations of young scientists to explore sustainability and environmental research. Today the Academy's Patrick Center for Environmental Research serves as a fitting tribute to this pioneer, who died in September 2013 at the age of 105.

    From Controversy to Consensus:  Making the case for recent climatic change in the Arctic using lake sediment records

    John Smol, OC, PhD, FRSC

    Department of Biology
    Queen's University, Kingston, Ontario

    John P. Smol, OC, PhD, FRSC is a professor in the Department of Biology at Queen’s University, with a cross-appointment to the School of Environmental Studies, where he also holds the Canada Research Chair in Environmental Change. He received a B.Sc. from McGill University, an M.Sc. from Brock University and a Ph.D. from Queen's University.

    Smol founded the Paleoecological Environmental Assessment and Research Lab (PEARL) in 1991, a group of about 30 students and other scientists dedicated to the study of global environmental change, focusing primarily on changes in lake ecology. An ISI Highly Cited Researcher, he has authored over 450 journal publications and book chapters, as well as completed 20 books, including his textbook Pollution of Lakes and Rivers: A Paleoenvironmental Perspective. He has lectured on all seven continents, and has authored over 800 conference presentations, which include many keynotes and plenary lectures. He was the founding Editor of the international Journal of Paleolimnology (1987-2007), is the current Editor of the journal Environmental Reviews and editor of the Developments in Paleoenvironmental Research book series. Smol is a frequent commentator on environmental issues for radio, television, and the print media.

    Since 1990, Prof. Smol has received over 45 national and international research and teaching awards.  In 2009 he was presented with a 3M National Teaching Fellowship, considered by many to be Canada’s top teaching honour. In 2010, following a nation-wide competition, Smol was chosen by Nature magazine as Canada’s Top Mid-Career Science Mentor. He was just recently named by Canadian Geographic Magazine as one of the nine Canadian Change Makers – Canadians making a difference in the world in 2013.
