Augustin-Pyramus de Candolle Prize 2020
The Société de Physique et d'Histoire naturelle (SPHN) of Geneva is pleased to announce the award of the Augustin-Pyramus de Candolle Prize in 2020. This prize recognizes the author of the best treatment of a taxonomic group of plants, algae or fungi. The intent of the prize is to encourage and foster the publication of monographic treatments in plant taxonomy, preferably by scientists still in an early stage of their career.
The submitted work should be a complete coverage of the treated group, namely its arrangement in a system of hierarchical classification. It should follow the integrated taxonomy approach, including descriptions of morphological and anatomical characters, physiology, chemistry, ecology and molecular phylogenetics. Complete bibliography, critical synonymy and identification keys are required. The work should comply with the International Code of Nomenclature for algae, fungi, and plants. Applications should be received before 1 September 2019. For more information, please see this flyer.
