The Botanical Society of America proudly supports the Conservation and Research Foundation in honoring the memory of DR. JEANETTE SIRON PELTON. The Jeanette Siron Pelton Award is made by the The Conservation and Research Foundation of New London, CT, through the Botanical Society of America, for sustained and creative contributions in experimental plant morphology. BSA appoints the nomination committee and presents the award at the annual meeting. Beginning in 1998, the recipient of the Pelton Award is invited to present a special address at the BSA Annual Meeting the year following the award presentation. The Pelton Award is given in recognition of outstanding contributions in the field of experimental plant morphology. The field is broadly defined to include the subcellular, cellular and organismal levels of complexity.
