The Marsh Award for Innovative Ornithology
"Celebrates an important contribution which takes forward our understanding of avian ecology or conservation science"

This award is likely to go to an individual or group focusing on one of two types of recent work in the field of Ornithology, either a scientist or group of scientists who have published a recent paper or revealed a new finding which substantially advances our understanding in a relevant area of avian ecology, usually one that has implications for conservation, or an individual or group whose work postively reflects this new research or other appropriate pioneering work in the field, to the wider public.

Priority will be given to work that is relevant to the BTO's mission.  BTO scientists may be eligible for the award, as will other groups and individuals connected to or outside the BTO.
