Kaspar and Logsdon named ASA Fellows

The American Society of Agronomy has been selecting outstanding members to the position of Fellow since 1924. Colleagues within the Society nominate worthy members, and the Fellows Committee carefully ranks the nominees to determine the final selection. The Fellows are chosen for their professional achievements and meritorious service. Dr. Tom Kaspar, plant physiologist, and Dr. Sally Logsdon, research soil scientist, were named as 2006 ASA Fellows.

 

Dr. Kaspar serves as a USDA collaborator/professor with the Agronomy Department at Iowa State University. His research focuses mainly on crop and soil management to improve water quality and soil productivity. Kaspar is an associate editor for Soil Science Society of America Journal and a consulting editor for Plant and Soil. He has served on numerous committees and service functions for ASA and SSSA.

 

Dr. Logsdon is also an associate professor/collaborator in the Agronomy Department at Iowa State University. Her research responsibilities are to quantify landscape and management effects on plant-available water and to determine the dependence of soil electrical and thermal properties on soil structure under different management practices. Dr. Logsdon has been active in ASA and SSSA, where she has been a membership for 26 years, serving as associate editor and technical editor for the Soil Science Society of America Journal and on ASA and SSSA award committees. She currently serves as SSSA editor-in-chief.
