Remy, Remy, and Winslow Award - Paleobotanical

The WINFRIED AND RENATE REMY award was established at the 1996 meeting of the International Organization of Paleobotanists in Santa Barbara and instigated by the Paleobotanical Section of the Botanical Society of America to honor the life and work of Winfried and Renata Remy. Winfried Remy was an honorary member of the Paleobotanical Section and a Corresponding Member of the Botanical Society of America, and together with his wife Renata published a long list of internationally acclaimed scholarly contributions, including their reports on the Rhynie chert organisms. Since the designation of this award, paleobotanists from around the world have contributed to fund this prize.
