New Zealand Journal of Botany Award
Congratulations to Dr Peter Heenan of Landcare Research on receiving the inaugural New Zealand Journal of Botany prize.
The award will alternate between researchers who have a sustained record for excellence and those early-career researchers who have published a significant paper in recent issues of the journal.
The prize was presented to Dr Heenan for his outstanding contribution to southern hemisphere botany. He has been a loyal contributor to the New Zealand Journal of Botany for many years and his work has had a profound impact on our understanding of the systematics of New Zealand flora. He has published a large number of papers with a substantial citation rate in the journal.
The award was presented to Dr Heenan by Associate Professor Julian Eaton-Rye of the University of Otago, one of the journal’s associate editors, at the recent symposium held at the University of Otago to celebrate the life and work of John Buchanan.
