Thursday, July 12, 2012

Congratulations to Ashley Klymiuk, who won The Isabel Cookson Award at the annual meeting of the Botanical Society of America held in Columbus, Ohio, 7-11 July 2012. The prize celebrates Dr. Isabel Cookson, who is remembered as one of the most eminent palaeontologists of the past century (1893-1973). This award and fund was established in 1976 by a bequest from Isabel Cookson. The fund supports the Isabel C. Cookson Paleobotanical Award, which is given to the student who delivers the best contributed paper in paleobotany or palynology at the annual meeting. Ashley's presentation, entitled "Anamorphic fungi from the Princeton Chert: new insights into paleomicrobial diversity" was co-authored with her mentor Thomas Taylor and also with Michael Krings.
