I don’t see it on its website yet, but the Linnean Society of London has just awarded the prestigious Darwin-Wallace Medal to Loren Rieseberg, according to Twitter traffic. Dr Riesberg is an expert on sunflower genetics and evolution, and has done much pioneering work on the wild relatives. As luck would have it, I interviewed him recently about his work, and you can listen to the result here. Congratulations to Loren.
