RSSAf Fellow, South African environmental scientist Bob Scholes has been elected a foreign associate to the US National Academy of Sciences – one of the highest honours a scientist can achieve.

He joins a small group of elite scientists who have been elected to the US National Academy of Sciences, an independent, non-profit society, established by the US Congress in 1863. Only 21 foreign scientists are elected as associates every year and there is no membership application process. Only academy members may submit nominations. These are subjected to extensive vetting. Members are elected in recognition of their distinguished achievements in original research.

Scholes is among the top 1 percent of environmental scientists worldwide based on citation frequency.
