James Lee Wilson Award

2020 Winner - Lida Xing

The James Lee Wilson Award is bestowed in recognition of "Excellence in Sedimentary Geology by a Young Scientist."

Lida Xing is one of the best young paleontologists and geologists in China. He is studying Mesozoic Tetrapoda tracks in China by combining morphology, sedimentology, ethology, and photogrammetry, trying to enhance their global comparative value. Reconstruction of vertebrate inclusions in Cretaceous amber by synchrotron radiation, micro CT scans, and XRF has broken new ground in studies of Cretaceous vertebrates in Southeast Asian. With continuous researches and fruitful international cooperation, much more information can be expected from him in the coming decades.
