Since 2000 the Editorial Board has selected the recipient of the Julie S. Denslow Prize (formerly the Award for Excellence in Tropical Biology and Conservation), which recognizes the outstanding paper published in Biotropica in the previous calendar year. In recognition of the passion and creativity of early career scholars, in 2015 the Board also began recognizing the outstanding article by a student with the Peter Ashton Prize. Criteria for selecting the papers to receive these awards include clarity of presentation, a strong basis in natural history, well-planned experimental or sampling design, and the novel insights gained into critical processes that influence the structure, functioning, or conservation of tropical systems. Below is the complete list of the award-winning articles.
