Dr. Michael D. Owen
BSc (Wales – Swansea), PhD (Monash)

A member of the Zoology (now Biology) Department at the University of Western Ontario since 1970, my first research career centered on the chemistry of insect venoms and on amine neurotransmitters in insects. A teaching career in invertebrate biology and marine biology linked to a long-term involvement with the Huntsman Marine Science Centre and extensive diving experience generated a broad knowledge of marine invertebrates. After a period committed to university administration I am now embarking on a new research career focused on the diversity and distribution of meiofauna in the Bay of Fundy. While retaining an appointment at UWO I am based in North Bay Ontario, with an association with Nipissing University.

I have established collaborations with Seth Tyler (U. Maine), working on acoel platyhelminthes and gnathostomulids, and with Eyualem Abebe (U. New Hampshire, Hubbard Genome Centre) working on nematodes.

Key words: benthic ecology, biodiversity, meiofauna, Acoela, Nematoda
