Justin Havird, a 2014 doctoral graduate of the Department of Biological Sciences, has been selected as a winner of the Graduate School’s Distinguished Dissertation Awards.

The awards recognize the scholarship of doctoral students whose dissertations make an unusually significant contribution to their respective disciplines. Auburn’s colleges and schools nominate students for the awards, and an award committee composed of graduate faculty selects the award winners.

Havird’s dissertation, “Disturbance in the anchialine ecosystem: ramifications for ecology and physiology,” was awarded a $500 honorarium and a certificate. His dissertation committee consisted of Scott Santos, Raymond Henry, Mark Liles and Alan Wilson. Havird is now a postdoctoral fellow at Colorado State University.
