Founded in 1940, the society now has more than 2,300 members representing professionals, students, artists, preparators, and others interested in vertebrate paleontology. The society is organized exclusively for educational and scientific purposes.
The purpose of this Society is to:
- advance the science of vertebrate paleontology throughout the world;
- serve the common interests and facilitate the cooperation of all persons concerned with the history, evolution, ecology, comparative anatomy and taxonomy of vertebrate animals, as well as the field occurrence, collection and study of fossil vertebrates and the stratigraphy of the beds in which they are found;
- support and encourage the discovery, conservation, and protection of vertebrate fossils and fossil sites;
- foster the scientific, educational, and personal appreciation and understanding of vertebrate fossils and fossil sites by avocational, student and professional paleontologists and the general public.
The purpose of this award, named in honor of Dr. Bryan Patterson, is to support student field work in Vertebrate Paleontology. Particular consideration is given to proposals for field work that are innovative rather than routine, venturesome rather than predictable, unusual rather than run-of-the-mill.
