Dear moderator TAXACOM,

We, the Linnean Society council and president (ccd) would like to place the following advert in TAXACOM for the interest of its members. Thank you.

Nominate Excellence in the study of Natural History

The Linnean Society of London honours those who contribute scientifically and in other ways to natural history through our medals and awards that are given every year. We are seeking nominations across the spectrum of natural history, and particularly encourage nominations of candidates from traditionally marginalised or under-represented sectors of the natural history community.

Nominations close on 1 November 2020 –<tel:+442020> so the time is NOW to nominate excellent natural historians for a Linnean Society Award.

Medals and awards are detailed on the Society’s webpage (https://www.linnean.org/the-society/medals-awards-prizes-grants) where criteria are specified and a nomination form can be downloaded. Nominees do not have to be Fellows, but nominators must be Fellows of the Society. If you wish to nominate for these awards, but are not a Fellow, please contact nominations at linnean.org<mailto:nominations at linnean.org> BEFORE 15 October 2020.<tel:+442020>

Nominations will be scrutinized by the Society’s Nominations & Awards Committee and voted on by Council.

Please help the Society celebrate excellence in the science of natural history.

Thank you

Linnean Society of London Nominations & Awards Committee (S. Knapp, A. Goswami, B. Huertas, M. Telford, S. Pressel)
