The award for Holliday’s research contributions in the morphological sciences ― a branch of biology concerning the form and structure of animals and plants ― was presented at the association’s April 5 meeting in San Diego.

Holliday’s research focuses on the ways diet, environmental factors and age have affected the evolution of the connective tissues of the heads of lizards and alligators. Holliday’s research involves not only living animals, but also prehistoric crocodiles and non-avian dinosaurs.
