ANNOUNCING A NEW INTERNATIONAL PRIZE FOR THE BEST
DISSERTATION-BASED PUBLICATION ON THE COLEOPTERA


The Lacodaire Prize is designed to recognize the finest work by young
Coleopterists, as represented by their dissertation-based publications.
In addition to a cash prize of US$300 and plaque, the
Prize represents the attainment of the highest achievement among the
international community of scientists working on the biology and evolution
of the beetles.  Papers enter competition for the Prize grouped by the
calendar year of publication.  Nominations from the scientific community
at-large and a distinguished panel of world leaders of the
coleopterist community are judged by a Selection Committee of recognized
researchers.  Their selection is forwarded to the President of
the Coleopterists Society, and voted upon by the Executive
Committee of the Society.  Awards are presented at the annual
meeting of the Coleopterists Society, in December of the year
following the competition period.
