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 top
researchers.   Awards are presented at the annual meeting of the
Coleopterists Society, in December of the year following the competition
period.

The 1995 Lacordaire Prize will be awarded to the author of the best paper
dealing with the systematics or biology of the Coleoptera, based upon a
doctoral dissertation, published in the calendar year 1995.  Nominations

procedures and criteria:

Nominations are open to papers whose primary subject is some aspect of
Coleopteran systematics or biology, published in a widely distributed,
paper and ink format, and in a publication available by subscription
(journal) or sale (book).  Publications in any language using the Latin
alphabet are acceptable.  Only single authored papers are eligible.

Nominations consist of a letter of nomination including the name and
citation of the publication, the name and current address of the author, a
