Robert Whittaker Awards
There are two Whittaker Awards, both recognize ecologists who are not U.S. citizens and who reside outside the U.S.
- The Whittaker Distinguished Ecologist award is an honorary award that recognizes an ecologist with an earned doctorate and an outstanding record of contributions in ecology.
- The Whittaker Travel Award specifically recognizes an outstanding ecologist in a developing country. They can be at any career stage. The Whittaker Travel Award provides funds for travel to the United States for research or to attend the ESA meeting, covering expenses up to $1200.
