Item Summary

Title:Abstracts of Papers: Fifth Annual Albert L. Tester Memorial Symposium, 10-11 April 1980
Date Issued:Jul 1980
Publisher:University of Hawaii Press
Abstract:The Albert L. Tester Memorial Symposium is held in honor of Professor
Albert Tester who, at the time of his death in 1974, was Senior Professor of
Zoology at the University of Hawaii. The facuIty 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 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 are used to provide two prizes for the best papers by
graduate students in the Department of Zoology. 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 Dr. Gareth Nelson of the
American Museum of Natural History, a former student of Dr. Tester,
participated in the symposium.
