CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – Dr. James D. Simons, Associate Research Scientist at the Center for Coastal Studies at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi, was recently awarded a stipend as part of an Encyclopedia of Life (EOL) Rubenstein Fellowship to further his research in biodiversity in relation to species interactions.

Dr. Simons, a Co-Principal Investigator for a project titled “Unleashing EOL's Species Interaction Datasets—Integration, Visualization, and Analysis” led by Jorrit Poelen of Oakland, Calif., will receive 1.5 months of funding to help support biodiversity related research. For the project, Dr. Simons is involved with making species interaction information such as predator prey, symbiosis, and parasitic relationships more accessible to scientists and the public through the Encyclopedia of Life (EOL) website. For more information related to this project, go to http://eol.org/info/485.

The EOL Rubenstein Fellows program, which supports the research of scientists throughout the world, is committed to online collaboration and outreach, and original biodiversity research conducted by post-graduates, graduate students, and other scientists. An area of focus is to delve into the knowledge and expertise of late career and retired scientists. Fellows also help EOL develop effective strategies for engaging and supporting the scientific community.
