The Engler Medal in SILVER

The Engler Silver Medal is awarded annually for an outstanding monograph or other work in systematic botany, mycology or phycology. It is presented at a significant international meeting, congress, or symposium. 

 

In 2002 the original Engler Silver medal was divided into three awards: the Engler Silver Medal for outstanding monographic or systematic works, the Stafleu Medal for historical, bibliographic, and/or nomenclatural aspects of systematics and taxonomy, and the Stebbins Medal for phylogenetic systematics and evolutionary studies.
