The Phycological Society of America is soliciting nominations for the Prescott Award presented to the author(s) of the most outstanding scholarly book and/or monograph (excluding edited volumes) in English devoted to phycology published during the past two years.
Because this award has not been given for several years, we are seeking nominations for two awards: one for books published from 2009-2010 and another for books published from 2007-2008.
The Prescott Award was established in 1982 by students, friends and colleagues of Dr. Gerald W. Prescott, a Founder and former president of The Society and distinguished teacher and researcher at Willamette University, Albion College, Michigan State University, and The University of Montana.
The Award shall consist of a certificate and a monetary prize to be presented at the 2011 Phycological Society of America Annual Meeting in Seattle, WA July 13-16th.
Previous Awardees can be found on this webpage.
Please send your nominations, including author(s), title and publisher by February 18th 2011 via email to Jeremiah Hackett.
