The Animal Geography Specialty Group (AnGSG) of the AAG invites emerging animal geography scholars to submit to our annual Graduate Student Paper Award competition.
Eligible papers must be based on original empirical or theoretical research (basic literature reviews are not eligible) in the field of Animal Geography and engage directly with these literatures. Papers that engage with other literatures (e.g., conservation biology, animal sociology, etc.) are welcome, but the primary emphasis must be on the animal geographic literature or they will not be considered. Papers submitted to other AAG paper competitions are not eligible, nor arepapers that have already been published. The student must be a member of the AnGSG at the time of submission and the sole author of the paper. The student is not required to present at the AAG meeting to submit a paper to the competition.
