The Allerton Award is given biennially and is named to honor one of the garden's founding trustees and its principal benefactor. It consists of an honorarium of $1,000 and a bronze medal designed by Joseph Feher of the Honolulu Academy of Arts.

The 1988 Jesse M. Greenman Award

The 1988 Jesse M. Greenman Award has been won by John H. Wiersema for his publication, "A Monograph of Nymphaea Subgenus Hydrocallis (Nymphaeaceae)," which appeared in Systematic Botany Monographs, Volume 16. This monograph is derived from a Ph.D. dissertation submitted to the University of Alabama under the direction of Dr. Robert R. Haynes. Dr. Wiersema based his classification on numerical taxonomy, scanning electron microscopy of seeds and pollen, chromosome numbers, floral biology, artificial hybridization, flavonoid chemistry, and general morphology. Fourteen species are recognized in the subgenus, which is restricted to the American tropics and subtropics, and one new subspecies is proposed.

This award is named for Jesse More Greenman (1867-1951), who was curator of the Missouri Botanical Garden Herbarium from 1919 until 1943. A cash price of $250 is presented each year by the Garden, recognizing the paper judged best in vascular plant or bryophyte systematics based on a doctoral dissertation that was published during the previous year. Nominations for papers published during 1988 are now being accepted for the 21st annual award, which will be presented in the summer of 1989. Reprints of such papers should be sent to: Greenman Award Committee, Research Division, Missouri Botanical Garden, P.O. Box 299, St. Louis, MO 63166-0299, U.S.A. In order to be considered for the 1989 award, reprints much be received by 1 June 1989.

Research Fellowships in Ecology

Research Fellowships are available for the summer of 1989 at the University of Virginia's Blandy Experimental Farm. These awards provide research opportunities for graduate students and Ph.D. post-graduate scientists to conduct field research employing the facilities and habitats of the Blandy Farm. Each award provides a summer stipend ($3,000 for Ph.D.'s; $2,300 for graduate students), funds for research supplies, and on-site housing.

The Blandy Farm is located at 160-m elevation on the northeastern edge of the Shenandoah Valley in northern Virginia. It supports a broad range of habitats characteristic of the region including several oak-hickory-elm woodlots, a number of old-fields that are of different ages and histories, pastures, and several small ponds. The Farm also supports the Orland E. White Arboretum with over 7,000 trees and shrubs representing more than 100 genera and 50 families. Current research emphasizes plant-insect interactions, community ecology of old-field plants and small mammals, and the effect of herbivorous mammals on the tempo and mode of plant succession. Because of the extensive and contrasting old-field habitats, the Farm is eminently suited for field experiments that focus on varied aspects of plant population and community ecology at the scale of meters to tens of hectares. Facilities available to researchers include growth chambers, greenhouses, laboratories, computational facilities, a small library, living accommodations, farm equipment, and several station vehicles. Fellowship applications should send a letter of application with a 3-5 page description of the proposed research, a curriculum vitae, and the names (and telephone numbers) of three references by 1 March 1989 to: Dr. Michael A. Bowers, Blandy Experimental Farm, P.O. Box. 175, Boyce, Virginia 22620 U.S.A. (703/837-1758).

Nominations, Editor-in-Chief, American Journal of
Botany

Beginning in August 1989, the Botanical Society of America will need a new Editor-in-Chief for the American Journal of Botany. A committee consisting of Robert Edward Wyatt, Leslie D. Gottlieb, Theodore Delevoryas (ex officio), and William Louis Stern (Chairman) was appointed by President Shirley C. Tucker to seek candidates for the post and to recommend an outstanding selection to the Executive Committee of the Council.

The Editor-in-Chief is responsible for the publication of the American Journal of Botany in accordance with editorial policies established by the Botanical Society of America, the Editorial Committee of the Journal, and Journal tradition. This responsibility includes the processing of manuscripts, overseeing their professional review, preparation of issues, and adherence to a timely publication schedule. The excellence, high scholarly and editorial standards maintained by the Journal over the years reflect in large part the quality of editorial guidance and control exerted by the Editor-in-Chief. In great measure it is the Journal that has established the national and international prestige and high scientific repute

of the Society. Thus, it is critical to the professional reputation of our Society that the Journal continue to hold these values.

Please send all nominations for Editor-in-Chief to the committee chairman at the Department of Botany, University of Florida, Gainesville, Florida 32611 by November 1, 1988. All nominations should be accompanied by one or more strong letters of recommendation, including a curriculum vitae when possible, giving particulars in the experience of the nominee that might fit him or her for this important position. Members should feel free to nominate themselves. Nominators should first ascertain the willingness of nominees to serve if appointed and must be certain that the nominee's supporting institution would be sympathetic to such an appointment and would be able to provide the nominee with sufficient space, with adequate released time from academic responsibilities, and with such office facilities as are commensurate with the activities of the editorial office of a major scientific journal.

Pan-American Aerobiology Association

We are pleased to announce the formation a new professional organization; the Pan-American Aerobiology Association, with the purpose of providing a forum suitable for the timely dissemination of scientific and policy-related information to those engaged in Aerobiology. The PAAA will focus on cooperative venues and the relationship between individuals and groups in Canada, the United States, Mexico and the constituent nations of Central and South America. Moreover, the PAAA will sponsor international meetings, symposia and conferences and ongoing complementary efforts with Aerobiology affiliates of other continents. The PAAA was founded during the Canadian Aerobiology Conference, "Aerobiology, Health, Environment" in Montreal, June 1-3, 1988 by an ad hoc international panel. An Advisory Committee was formed and inaugural officers were elected. At present, persons interested in more information may contact either: Ted Martonen, Ph.D., Inhalation Toxicology Division (MD #82), Health Effects Research Laboratory, U.S. E.P.A., Research Triangle Park, NC 27711, U.S.A. (919/541-7875) or Paul Comtois, Ph.D., Centre de Recherches Ecologiques de Montreal, CP 6128 Montreal, Canada H3C 3J7 (514/270-2976).

Aerobiology is a multidisciplinary field, rich in variety and depth as indicated by the Montreal presentations. The PAAA will foster future assemblies where Aerobiology in all its diversity can be explored. Toward this end, we encourage your participation in the Second Canadian Aerobiology Conference (Ottawa, June 7-9, 1989) where the formal organization of the Pan-American Aerobiology Association will take place.

Undergraduate Majors in Botany
