Pacific Science 42 (1988)

Pacific Science 42, nos. 1 & 2: Special Issue on Evolutionary Biology in Honor of Hampton Lawrence Carson, Department of Genetics, University of Hawaii


The papers in this special issue of Pacific Science were presented at the International Symposium on Genetics, Speciation, and the Founder Principle held at the Ala Moana Hotel in Honolulu, 5-7 June 1985. Sponsored by the Hawaiian Evolutionary Biology Program, that meeting produced a gathering of students of the evolutionary process from around the world who have in one way or another been influenced by the catholic curiosity and generosity that have marked Hampton Carson’s studies of genetics and speciation.

The range of subjects covered by these papers, though broad, represents only a small portion of the evolutionary biology that has interested Hampton Carson and his associates in the past, and only a fraction of the material discussed at the symposium. These papers have been selected for this volume because it was felt that they would be of particular interest to the readers of Pacific Science.

In Memoriam: Dee (Dora May Banner, 1916-1986), Hank (Albert Henry Banner, 1914-1985)

Hank and Dee Banner contributed immeasurably to the welfare of Pacific Science for more than 30 years. Hank first published in Pacific Science in 1953 with a masterful paper on the Crangonidae, or snapping shrimps, of Hawaii. Over the next 30 years 18 additional articles on his snapping shrimp appeared (in addition to the more than 50 papers published in various journals throughout the world). Eleven papers were co-authored with Dee from 1960 on. The last paper was published in 1985. Hank also contributed to Pacific Science as a member of the Board of Editors, first from 1956 to 1958, and then from 1972 until his death in 1985.
