Two separate awards, the Billings Award and the New Phytologist Poster Award recognize significant advancements in physiological ecology. Entrants are judged on the rigor, creativity, importance, and quality of presentation of the research. Applications are due June 1, 2011.
The W.D. and S.M. Billings award is made to the graduate student whose oral presentation at the
Annual Meeting of the Ecological Society of America represents a significant advancement in physiological ecology. The winner receives a $500 check from the Physiological Ecology section and will be able to select a complimentary book from Elsevier. The honorable mention winner also receives a complimentary book of his/her choice. The award recognizes the lifetime contributions by its namesakes, Dwight and Shirley Billings, to physiological ecology. Dwight built the foundation for physiological ecology in North America and provided leadership for the field throughout his illustrious career. Together, Dwight and Shirley have shown a deep regard for the interests and training of graduate students in this dynamic component of ecology.
THE NEW PHYTOLOGIST POSTER AWARD
This award is given to the student with the best physiological ecology poster presentation at the annual ESA meeting. In 2008, the Section renamed the “Best Poster award” to the “New Phytologist Poster award” in recognition of New Phytologist’s contribution to the Billings Fund, which is the source of the cash prizes given to the award winners. The winner receives a $500 check from the Physiological Ecology section and will be able to select a complimentary book from Elsevier. The honorable mention winner also receives a complimentary book courtesy of Elsevier.
