A.D. Hopkins Award & Roger F. Anderson Award

Please begin to consider nominations for the A.D. Hopkins Award (for a professional who has made significant contributions to forest entomology in the southern U.S.) and the Roger F. Anderson Award (for an outstanding graduate student in forest entomology in the southern U.S.).  Putting together a nomination packet takes some time, so start thinking now about colleagues and students who qualify for these awards.  Nomination details and deadlines will be coming soon!
