Steven M. Holland received Charles Schuchert Award

Steven M. Holland, professor of geology, received the Charles Schuchert Award in recognition of work that “reflects excellence and quality” by a paleontologist under the age of 40.

The international award is normally presented to one individual each year by the Paleontological Society at the annual conference of the Geological Society of America.

Holland’s research integrates computer simulations of the fossil record with extensive field data on the richly fossiliferous Ordovician sequences of the eastern United States.

Holland is also the recipient of the Society for Sedimentary Geology’s 2000 James Lee Wilson Award for excellence in sedimentary geology by a young scientist.
