Awards > Edward S. Deevey Student Award in Paleoecology > Policies
The Paleoecology Section of the Ecological Society of America has established the Edward S. Deevey award in memory of Dr. Deevey's efforts and dedication in fostering the highest quality of paleoecological research by graduate students. The award of $150 is offered for the best oral or poster presentation in Paleoecology by a graduate student at the Annual ESA Meeting. Paleoecology is defined to include studies of ecological processes and patterns that occur at or greater than decade-long time scales and that use or interpret direct, long-term biological, paleontological, sedimentary, historical or similar records.
A candidate for the award must be the sole or senior author of the abstract. He or she must also prepare and present an oral paper or prepare, set up, and present a poster at the Annual Meeting. The candidate must be a graduate student or have completed the degree within 9 months of the presentation. The presentation must describe research used for obtaining a graduate degree. The evaluation criteria parallel those used in selecting the ESA Buell and Braun Award winners. The winner of the award will be announced in the ESA Bulletin following the Annual Meeting.
If you wish to be considered for the Deevey award at the Annual Meeting, please submit an application form and a copy of your abstract by mail, fax or e-mail to the Section Award Committee Chair.
