In Memoriam:
Steve Karl

The Marine Biology Graduate Program is deeply saddened by the loss of Dr. Stephen Karl, who passed away on June 1, 2017. Steve was a core and stalwart member of the MBGP; his research blended his interests and expertise in ecology and genetics to help better understand the biology of marine vertebrates and invertebrates. As a mentor to our students, an active and dedicated participant in our seminars, and as our co-director from 2014-2015, his loss is felt across the MBGP and Manoa communities. We will miss his ever-questioning spirit, his commitment to academic rigor, and his passion for the field.
