Please consider nominating a citizen scientist whose contributions you  
value.  Nominations are due to me by February 1, 2012.  Thank you!



Know of an amateur (aka citizen scientist; avocational paleontologist)  
who has furthered the field of paleontology?  Please recognize that

paleontology). Contributions may be an outstanding record of research  
and publication, making outstanding collections, safeguarding unique  
paleontological materials through public service, teaching activities  
in the area of paleontology, and collaborations with others working in  

Anyone, including other amateurs, may make a nomination.  Nominators  
do not have to be members of the Paleontological Society.
