|Title:||Abstracts of Papers: Seventeenth Annual Albert L. Tester Memorial Symposium, 15-16 April 1992|
|Publisher:||University of Hawaii Press|
|Abstract:||The Albert L. Tester Memorial Symposium is held in honor of Professor Albert
L. Tester, who, at the time of his death in 1974, was senior professor of zoology
at the University of Hawaii. The faculty and students of the Department of
Zoology proposed an annual symposium of student research papers as a
means of honoring, in a continuing and active way, Dr. Tester's lively
encouragement of student research in a broad range of fields in marine biology.
Papers reporting original research on any aspect of biology are solicited
from students at the university, and these papers are presented at the symposium,
which takes place during the spring semester. Income from contributions to the
Albert L. Tester Memorial Fund of the University of Hawaii Foundation is used
to provide two prizes for the best papers by graduate students. Papers are judged
on quality, originality, and importance of research reported, as well as the
quality of the public presentation. Judges include several members of the faculty
of the Department of Zoology as well as winners of the symposium from the
preceding year, when possible. In addition, a distinguished scholar from another
university is invited to participate in the symposium as a judge and to present
the major symposium address. This year Robert Warner of the University of
California, Santa Barbara, participated in the symposium.
