|Prof. Dr. Stefano CANNICCI
Università degli Studi di Firenze,Florence, Tuscany,Italy
Stefano Cannicci has been working on the biology and ecology of mangrove crabs for more than 20 years. He obtained his PhD from the laboratory headed by Prof. Marco Vannini and together they organised the very first edition of the MMM conferences. Stefano Cannicci and his collaborators have a long list of publications on ecological and ethological aspects of mangrove macrobenthos, with an emphasis on crabs and gastropods and on the East-African coast. He is also involved in physiological and phylogenetic research in the Indo-West Pacific region and since recently also in similar research on the West-African coast.
|Dr. Karen L. McKEE
United States Geological Survey – USGS,National Wetlands Research Center,Lafayette, Louisiana,United States of America
Dr. Karen McKee is an ecologist at the U. S. Geological Survey-National Wetlands Research Center in Lafayette, Louisiana, USA. Her research focuses on how wetlands are affected by and respond to global changes such as sea-level rise, elevated atmospheric carbon dioxide, climate change, and disturbance. Her work has been published in over 100 journal articles, book chapters, fact sheets, and videos.
|Prof. Dr. Em. Jurgenne PRIMAVERA
Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center – SEAFDEC,Iloilo, Philippines
For decades of aquaculture and mangrove research and development, Jurgenne H. Primavera has been awarded a PhD in Science honoris causa by Stockholm University, a Pew Fellowship in Marine Conservation, and TIME Magazine Hero of the Environment, among others. She presently manages the Community-Based Mangrove Rehabilitation Project of the Zoological Society of London in Panay, central Philippines.
The pre-conference program has been printed in the MMM3 Program Book. However, changes made during the conference are given in the online final version of the conference program only (below).
