Announcement of the Forbes and Owen Prizes
The Council of the Palaeontographical Society is pleased to announce it is considering applications for the Edward Forbes Prize and Richard Owen Research Fund. The Forbes Prize aims to recognise outstanding contributions by early career researchers in the field of taxonomic and systematic palaeontology (encompassing invertebrates, vertebrates, palaeobotany and microfossils) and comprises £250 and a one-year membership of the Society. The Richard Owen Research Fund provides small grants to assist palaeontological research (travel, visits to museums, fieldwork, etc.) within the Society’s remit of describing the fossil fauna and flora of the British Isles. The closing date for both competitions is 28th February 2014. Full details can be found by clicking here.
