David Cushing Prize

The prize honours the memory of David Cushing, Founding Editor of Journal of Plankton Research. It is awarded annually for the best paper by an early career stage scientist published in the journal during the previous year, where the first author is aged 30 or younger. The prize helps foster the interesting and high-quality papers by young scientists that David Cushing so actively supported.

The 2016 David Cushing prize has been awarded to Marie-Pier Hébert for her paper with Beatrix Beisner and Roxane Maranger:
