George R. Cooley Award for Best Contributed Paper in Plant Systematics - 2014
Each year the American Society of Plant Taxonomists recognizes an outstanding paper presentation by awarding the George R. Cooley Award to the presenter of a paper judged to be the best among those eligible. Candidates for the award must be 1) a graduate student or within five years of having received the Ph.D., 2) first author and presenter of the paper being judged, and 3) a member of ASPT at the time the abstract is submitted. Additionally, only one paper will be judged for any candidate.
1. A student should NOT sign up to be evaluated unless a solid presentation has been prepared (and that means practicing!).
2. There should be a substantial amount of data analysis and results presented (the award will not be given for a talk about work to be done).
