Plant Population Ecology Student Travel Awards

The ESA-PPE provides funds each year for students to travel to the national meeting.
The student must: 

  1. be the presenter/first author of a talk or poster at the meeting, and
  2. be a member of the section (if you are not sure whether you are up to date with the section dues, please contact gro.asenull@pihsrebmem).

If you would like to be considered, please send a *SINGLE PDF FILE* containing your CV and a budget detailing your expected expenses for the meeting to Nick Barber (ude.uinnull@rebrabn) by May 1, 2017. We plan to inform the selected students by the end of June. If we receive more requests than we have funds available, we will chose recipients based primarily on economic need and geographical distance from their home institution to Portland, OR, and secondarily on scientific accomplishments (normalized by academic stage).

Travel support will range between $200-300 and will be given to the winners during the PPE mixer in Portland on Wednesday, August 9, 2017. Recipients are highly encouraged to attend the PPE mixer to be recognized and to receive the check. Awardees are also expected to serve at the PPE silent auction in Portland, which will help fund future student travel awards.

Postdoctoral Excellence Award in Plant Population Ecology

The Plant Population Ecology (PPE) section of the Ecological Society of America (ESA) is pleased to announce the Postdoctoral Excellence Award in Plant Population Ecology, sponsored by the journal AoB PLANTS. This honor is presented at ESA’s annual meeting each August and recognizes a distinguished journal contribution to plant population ecology within the past three years by a postdoctoral member of the PPE section. The winner will receive an award of $500 from AoB PLANTS. Established in 2010 and published by Oxford University Press, AoB PLANTS is a non-profit, open-access journal specializing in environmental and evolutionary plant biology. The journal has distinguished Advisory and Editorial Boards, renders first decisions on manuscripts in an average of 35 days, and has a 2014 Impact Factor score of 2.273.

For more information on eligibility and applications for any of these awards, please visit our section website: Plant Population Ecology

Eligibility – Applicants must have received their Ph.D. degrees between January 1, 2014 and December 31, 2016 and be a current member of the PPE section (if applicants are not a member of ESA or the PPE section, they can join prior to applying). Applicants must be first author on the publication, which may result from either dissertation or postdoctoral research. Publications in any journal are eligible, provided they were published within the past calendar year (January – December 2016). Manuscripts that were accepted for publication by December 2016 may also be submitted for consideration. Only one publication will be considered per applicant.

Application – To apply, submit as a single, merged pdf file with both a qualifying manuscript and a 200-word statement describing how the paper advances the field of plant population ecology. Applications should be emailed to the PPE Secretary Nick Barber (ude.uinnull@rebrabn) by 5 pm EST on April 15, 2017. Please use “ESA PPE – AoBP Postdoc Award” as the subject line. 

Applications will be assessed by the PPE Executive Board. The award will be announced at the annual meeting of the ESA in Portland, Oregon during the PPE section mixer on Wednesday, August 9, 2017. The recipient is strongly encouraged to attend the PPE mixer to be recognized and to accept the award.
