Nominations for the Distinguished Naturalist Award

Posted on by Jeff Conner

Due January 15

The ASN seeks nominations (including self-nominations) for the Distinguished Naturalist Award. Nominations are due by 15 January and should consist of a brief statement of suitability for the award, a curriculum vitae, and names and email addresses of three current and/or former trainees of the nominee. To nominate yourself or others please use this Google form; you can also contact President-elect Jeff Conner with questions or nominations.

We are committed to increasing the diversity of our awardees. Information about these and other ASN awards is here. The names of former recipients can be found here.

The ASN Distinguished Naturalist Award is given to an active investigator in mid-career who has made significant contributions to the knowledge of a particular ecosystem or group of organisms.

Individuals whose research and writing illuminate principles of evolutionary biology and an enhanced aesthetic appreciation of natural history will merit special consideration. The recipient need not be a member of the Society. The award will consist of an especially appropriate work of art and a prize of $2,000.
