The Hennig Society was founded in 1980 with the expressed purpose of promoting the field of Phylogenetic Systematics. Hennig's idea that groups of organisms, or taxa, should be recognized and formally named only in cases where they are evolutionarily real entities, that is "monophyletic," at first was controversial. It is now the prevailing approach to modern systematics.
This research award, in honor of our Founder J. S. Farris, will fund parsimony-based research on systematics by graduate students.
