Michael Menaker, Commonwealth Professor of Biology, and Carla Green, assistant professor of biology -- both members of the National Science Foundation Center for Biological Timing at U.Va. -- were two of nine speakers presenting talks on biological clocks at a Sept. 20-21 symposium at the Royal Society in London. In celebration of the millennium, the society organized a two-day public symposium on the "Measurement of Time." Menaker spoke on "Time in Life (The Evolution of Biological Clocks)" and Green presented "The Clock in the Eye." Two of the other seven presenters on biological clocks were connected at one time with the biology department and Center for Biological Timing: Steve Kay, now with the Scripps Research Institute in California; and Russell Foster, now with Imperial College in London.

Works by Richard Crozier, professor of painting, and Phil Geiger, associate professor of painting, are exhibited in the Virginia Historical Society and Museum's show, "The Virginia Landscape." The exhibit, which runs through Nov. 12 in Richmond, includes 240 views of Virginia from the first English settlement to the present.

Warren Byrd, professor of landscape architecture and principal in the firm Nelson-Byrd, was recently recognized by the Virginia chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects for his work. His design for the Marie Selby Botanical Garden in Sarasota, Fla., received an honor award; his design for the Gardens at Bedon's Alley in Charleston, S.C., received a merit award; and his work at the Blandy Experimental Farm and State Arboretum of Virginia received a special commendation. The master plan for the Gardens at Bedon's Alley also won a National Merit Award and an Inform (magazine) Award.
