F. Herbert Bormann

Celebrating the Legacy of F. Herbert Bormann

At YSE’s 38th Annual Research Day on April 8, the 14th annual Bormann Prize will be awarded to a YSE student whose work exemplifies the legacy of plant ecologist F. Herbert Bormann. Bormann, who taught at YSE from 1966-1992, was one of the scientists credited with the discovery of acid rain and his research was a major contributory factor towards the amendments to the Clean Air Act in 1990. This year’s award will be particularly poignant as March 24th of this year was Bormann’s Centennial — having been born on March 24, 1922, in New York City.
