|Title:||Abstracts of Papers. Twenty-seventh Annual Albert L. Tester Memorial Symposium, 21-22 March 2002|
|Issue Date:||Apr 2003|
|Publisher:||University of Hawai'i 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 Hawai'i at Manoa. 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 within marine biology.
Papers reporting original research on any aspect of science 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 Hawai'i Foundation is
used to provide prizes for the two best papers, judged on quality, originality, and
importance of research reported, as well as the quality of the public presentation.
The Waildld Aquarium presents the Mike Weekley Award, based on the
same criteria. Judges include Department of Zoology faculty members and the
previous year's student award winners. In addition, a distinguished scholar from
another university or research institution is invited to participate in the symposium
as a judge and to present the major symposium address. This year the guest
participant was Dr. Marc Mangel, Professor of Environmental Studies at the
University of California at Santa Cruz.
