Passing of Kenneth MannI have just received news of the passing of Ken Mann, 
who was such a well-known figure in marine ecology that I thought I should 
pass on the news to the list. I include an excerpt from the notice I 
received focussing on his achievments in science, but if anyone wants to see 
the full obituary just write me and I will send it on.

BIO is the Bedford Institute of Oceanography in Halifax, Nova Scotia, where 
Dalhousie University is also located. I worked at both places and Ken was 
the thesis advisor for my wife.

MANN, Kenneth Henry - Ken's scientific career at both BIO and Dalhousie 
University spanned well over 25 years and he continued to write and publish 
until quite recently.  He was Professor and Chairman of Biology at Dalhousie 
University from 1972-80 and was Director of the Marine Ecology Laboratory at 
BIO from 1980-87. Over the years, he was a mentor to post-doctoral students, 
many of whom remained lifelong friends to both he and Isabel.  He published 
over 170 papers in scientific journals and authored or co-authored a number 
of books.  Ken's significant achievements in the Aquatic Sciences and his 
role as a model for students were recognized in 1994 with a Lifetime 
Achievement Award by the American Society of Limnology and Oceanography.  In 
2003, he was presented with the Gulf of Maine Visionary Award by the Council 
on the Marine Environment for his commitment and leadership as an 
internationally recognized Marine Ecologist.  He was awarded, in 2008, an 
Honorary Degree by Cape Breton University.
