The Haldane Prize is awarded by the British Ecological Society each year for the best paper in Functional Ecology written by an early career author.
Today, we are pleased to present the shortlisted papers for this year’s award (from the 2020 volume of Functional Ecology).
This year’s shortlisted candidates are (in alphabetical order):
- Divergent adaptations in resource‐use traits explain how pikas thrive on the roof of the world – Anderson Feijó
- Water potential gradient, root conduit size and root xylem hydraulic conductivity determine the extent of hydraulic redistribution in temperate trees – Benjamin D. Hafner
- Body temperature, heart rate, and activity patterns of two boreal homeotherms in winter: Homeostasis, allostasis, and ecological coexistence – Allyson K. Menzies
- Severe coral loss shifts energetic dynamics on a coral reef – Renato A. Morais
- Decomposition disentangled: A test of the multiple mechanisms by which nitrogen enrichment alters litter decomposition – Noémie A. Pichon
- Nutrient limitation, bioenergetics and stoichiometry: A new model to predict elemental fluxes mediated by fishes – Nina M. D. Schiettekatte
