2019 CALL FOR NOMINATIONS
The Rohlf Medal for Excellence in Morphometrics
The Rohlf Medal was established in 2006 by the family and friends of F.
James Rohlf to mark his 70th birthday. He has been a longtime Stony
Brook University faculty member and is currently Emeritus Distinguished
Professor in the Department of Ecology and Evolution, and Research
Professor in the Department of Anthropology.
Recipients of the Rohlf Medal will be recognized for excellence in their
body of work on the development of new morphometric methods or for their
applications in the biomedical or biological sciences, including
evolutionary biology, population biology, physical anthropology,
developmental biology, neurobiology, computer sciences, and medicine.
The term "morphometrics" is intended to include high-dimensional pattern
analyses of biological shape, especially those that analyze shape in a
comprehensive way, or of covariation of shape with other variables. The
award can recognize advances in the mathematical or statistical theory
underlying morphometric methods, new software that implements or
visualizes new methods, or specific new biological findings that rely
crucially on contemporary morphometric methods and represent major
Candidates for the Rohlf Medal may be self-nominated or nominated by
others. They must possess a Ph.D. degree or the equivalent.
The winning candidate must agree to attend the award ceremony in
person in order to accept the Rohlf Medal and then deliver the award

(1) a description of the body of work (not to exceed two pages) on which
the candidacy is based,
(2) reprints of no more than three relevant papers and/or software
(3) a curriculum vitae, and
(4) three letters of support.
Nominating packages should be uploaded to the Rohlf Medal website
(http://life.bio.sunysb.edu/ee/rohlf_medal/apply.html) and received by 5

The successful candidate will receive the Rohlf Medal and a cash prize
at Stony Brook University, planned for Thursday October 24th, 2019. She
or he will deliver a lecture that is appropriate for a broad audience,
ranging from the exact sciences to the humanities, concerning the
morphometric methodology, software, or findings for which the Rohlf
Medal was awarded.
