Named in honor of Wesley “Bud” Lanyon, the 37th President of the American Ornithologists’ Union, the Lanyon Award recognizes the early-career ornithologist who authors the best synthesis or review paper, to be published as an open-access article in one of the AOS journals, Ornithology or Ornithological Applications. The winner will be announced in December 2022, and will be invited to organize a symposium on their winning review topic at next summer’s annual meeting in London, Ontario.
