The Pat Marks Medal

About the Award

   
     
The Pat Marks Medal is the Society’s career award for excellence in entomology and is given every two years (odd years) to a member of the Society who has demonstrated excellence in entomology over many years.

The award is named in honour of Dr Elizabeth "Pat" Marks, the Society’s first Vice President and Chairman of the Executive. Pat was an outstanding entomologist who embodied the excellence in entomological pursuits that the award recognises.
