He has been invited to speak at many meetings and symposia, including the recent International Botanical Congress in St. Louis.

He is deeply involved in graduate education at his university and has a relatively large group of graduate students for whom he serves as mentor. We strongly believe that Dr. Scheres is highly deserving of this award. Fred Sacks, Chair, Pelton Award Committee Date: July 27, 2000 To: Executive Committee and Council, Botanical Society of America From: 1999-2000 Publications Committee: Darleen DeMason ([email protected]), Pam Diggle ([email protected]), Kim Hiser [ ex officio ] ([email protected]), Judy Jernstedt [chair] ([email protected]), Joe Leverich ([email protected]), Karl Niklas [ ex officio ] ([email protected]), Scott Russell [ ex officio ] ([email protected]), Jonathan Wendel ([email protected]). Re: 2000 Annual Report of the Publications Committee Two topics have been considered at length by our committee: (1) how and when to initiate special issues of the American Journal of Botany, and (2) how to reduce the backlog of accepted manuscripts for the American Journal of Botany. These are interrelated issues and will involve a substantial commitment of resources from the Society. 1. Special issues of the American Journal of Botany a) Background: At the Spring 2000 meeting, the Executive Committee of the BSA decided to pursue the publication of special issues of the AJB and charged this committee with devising a possible mechanism to do this. b) Call for nominations: Nominations for topics for special issues must be received by a June 1deadline each year. Notices announcing this deadline and describing the information required for a nomination will appear in the December/Fall mailing, the Spring mailing, the Plant Science Bulletin, on the BSA web page, and in the American Journal of Botany. Possible contents of proposed special issues include BSA meeting symposia, single topic collections of papers, and review articles. Members, sections, symposia organizers, and the AJB Editor-in- Chief and Associate Editors will be solicited for suggestions. Nominations must include a detailed outline of the contents of the proposed issue, including authors, estimated pages, projected illustrations, and a detailed timeline for submission of manuscripts, for revision of manuscripts, and for return of page proofs. c) Selection process: The ad hoc Publications Committee and the Editor-in-Chief of the American Journal of Botany (already an ex officio member of the Publications Committee, but for this purpose, a voting member) will recommend one proposal for publication in a special issue of AJB. Any person directly involved in a nominated proposal, e.g., as an author, will not 41

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
