THE following papers were considered by a panel of Associate Editors, Editorial Board members, and ASIH members selected by the Editor to be the best papers published in Copeia in 2015. These awards were initiated for the 2012 volume. Six papers are recognized each year: three in herpetology and three in ichthyology. There are three categories: Best Paper Overall, Best Paper Young Scholar, and Best Student Paper. The Best Paper Overall is chosen without regard to rank. The Best Paper Young Scholar is chosen when the lead author is either a postdoc or untenured at the time of submission. The Best Student Paper is chosen when the lead author is a student at the time of submission.
