Item Summary

Title: Abstracts of Papers: Sixteenth Annual Albert L. Tester Memorial Symposium, 10-12 April 1991
Issue Date: Jan 1992
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 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 offields 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 on 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 John Maynard Smith of the University of
Sussex participated in the symposium.
