The Edward S. Deevey Award is given by the Paleoecology Section of the ESA to honor Deevey's contributions through fostering the highest quality paleoecological research by graduate students. The award recognizes the best oral or poster presentation in paleoecology by a graduate student at the annual meeting of the Society.
"Pushing the limits of the boreal forest fire regime: recent changes in a 10,000 year context."
