Meigen Medal

In memory of the great entomologist Johann Wilhelm Meigen (1764–1845) and in order to promote entomological research in the field of systematics and faunistics, the "German Society for General and Applied Entomology" endows the "Meigen Medal".
Award criteria are particularly comprehensive publications, such as revisions, faunistic or faunistic-ecological summaries, but also new systematic or faunistic methods, as well as the complete works of a particularly deserving scientist.

Statutes for the award of the Meigen Medal.

The award is made by the chairman of the DGaaE on the proposal of a board of trustees consisting of five members of the society (Curatorships of the DGaaE).
