Population Ecology Young Scientist Award

The Population Ecology Young Scientist Award recognizes outstanding scientific contributions to the study of population ecology by investigators at relatively early stages of their research career. Awarded annually by the Society of Population Ecology at its general meeting, the award consists of a certificate and a prize. The award is open to young scientists of all nationalities, who should be a member of The Society of Population Ecology or have published at least one paper in Population Ecology.
