The Annual Joy Belsky Memorial Lecture

The lecture honors the legacy of Portland, Oregon plant ecologist Joy Belsky who died of breast cancer on December 14, 2001, at the age of fifty-seven.

Funded by a gift from Joy’s husband, plant physiologist Robert Amundson , the lecture celebrates Joy Belsky’s commitment to equality for women and justice for the earth, her collaborative work ethic, and her courageous refusal to separate scientific research and advocacy.
