"A DREADFUL BUT EXCITING LIFE, FULL OF STRESS, PASSION AND DANGER”

Consider the Oyster, MFK Fisher

Join us for this special lecture where Bangor University alumnus Prof. Brian Bayne will talk about the role of 'organismal biology' (physiological ecology) in two aspects of marine biology: ecological models and experimental genomics.

This lecture will be part of the Seventh International Oyster Symposium being held at Bangor University 11-14 September.

PROF. BRIAN BAYNE's research over 50 years has encompassed physiological ecology and the energetics of marine bivalves, with an emphasis on mussels and oysters. He has made contributions to larval ecology, the physiology of feeding, nutrition, growth and reproduction, and the significance of genetic variability.

During his career as a marine biologist with the UK Natural Environment Research Council he served as the Director of the Institute for Marine Environmental Research and the Plymouth Marine Laboratory, and was the first Director of the Centre for Coastal and Marine Sciences. He gained his PhD at the Marine Science Laboratory at Bangor University and held post-doctoral appointments at the Universities of Copenhagen and Sao Paulo, and the Fisheries Research Laboratory at Conwy, North Wales. He was a Lecturer at the University of Leicester and held Research Professorships at the University of California and the University of Sydney and in 1998 he was appointed an OBE. In 1996 he published a monograph on mussels, and in 2017 a monograph on the Biology of Oysters.

DENNIS CRISP (1916-1990) was a zoologist with predilection for physics and chemistry, which disciplines he brought to bear on the physiology and ecology of marine invertebrates. He became one of Britain's best-known marine biologists and developed a school that has had a worldwide influence. Bangor University and the School of Ocean Sciences is proud to present this memorial lecture, a series which sees the diaspora of Dennis’ PhD students return to their alma mater to present on topics that were influenced and inspired by Professor Crisp.
