Three University of Guelph professors were named today to the College of New Scholars, Artists and Scientists.Integrative biology professor Andrew MacDougall, environmental sciences professor Nigel Raine, and Prof. Carla Rice, Family Relations and Applied Nutrition, were selected by the College. They will be inducted at a Nov. 24 ceremony in Winnipeg.

Raine, holder of the Rebanks Family Chair in Pollinator Conservation, studies pollinator behaviour, ecology and conservation research.

“As a newcomer to Canada, this honour is particularly special as it feels like a welcome from Canada’s academic establishment,” said Raine, who emigrated from Britain in 2014.

“Around a third of the food we eat depends on the activity of pollinators. It is imperative we understand the interacting factors driving global pollinator declines. We need to support healthy and diverse wild pollinator communities to sustain agricultural production and natural plant biodiversity.”
