Wilson Ornithological Society: Congratulations to This Year’s Publication Award Recipients

Recommended Posts

The WOS is pleased to announce the latest winners of our annual publication awards, for papers and reviews published in 2022.

The Edwards Prize, awarded to the authors of the best Major Article in each volume of The Wilson Journal of Ornithology, goes to Amanda W. Van Dellen and James S. Sedinger for their paper Predation risk and settlement decisions by colonially nesting Black Brant (Branta bernicla nigricans). You can read Dr. Sedinger’s blog post about the prize-winning paper here.

The Olson Prize, awarded to the author of the best book review in each volume of The Wilson Journal of Ornithology, goes to Christopher J. Clark for his review of Hummingbirds: A Celebration of Nature’s Jewels by Glenn Bartley and Andy Swash.

The Edwards Prize-winning article and the Olson Prize-winning review are available Open Access via the links above. Plaques commemorating the awards will be presented to the winners at our annual meeting, to be held in Allentown, Pennsylvania, on June 20–23, 2023.

The Edwards Prize, first awarded by the Society in 1970, is named in memory of Ernest P. “Buck” Edwards (1919–2011), who proposed the idea of a prize for best paper and provided initial supporting funds. The Edwards Prize-winning paper is chosen by a panel comprised of the Editor-in-Chief of the WJO and the corresponding authors of the two previous award-winning papers. The Olson Prize, first awarded by the Society in 2009, is named in honor of Storrs L. Olson (1944–2021), a prolific writer of witty, erudite book reviews for the WJO and other bird journals. The Olson Prize-winning review is chosen by a panel comprised of the Book Review Editor of the WJO and the authors of the two previous award-winning reviews.

Congratulations to this year’s publication award winners!
