NEW: Award for Best Student Paper
The Association of Field Ornithologists is now giving an award for the best paper published by a student in each volume of the Journal of Field Ornithology. A committee of AFO officers, councilors, and members will judge and rank papers based on the quality, significance and potential impact of the research. Collaborative efforts between two or more students can qualify for a joint award. The award winner(s) will be invited to give a special presentation of their work at the next annual meeting, and will receive funds to help cover the costs of traveling to the meeting.
