*Annelids: In Memory of Kristian Fauchald*
Dr. Kristian Fauchald, Research Zoologist (Emeritus) in the Department of
Invertebrate Zoology in the National Museum of Natural History (Smithsonian
Institution), died suddenly in April 2015. A loyal and active member of the
Society for Integrative & Comparative Biology (SICB) for several decades,
Kristian will be remembered for his passion for science, his diverse and
prolific research on polychaete annelids, and his mentorship of numerous
biologists from across the globe. Over the course of his career, he
contributed immensely to our understanding of an ancient, diverse and
ecologically important group of invertebrates, and he had an enormous
impact on the intellectual and professional development of others. To
celebrate Kristian’s legacy as a systematist, taxonomist, teacher, and
mentor, we are hosting a special session of contributed papers and posters
in his memory at the 2016 SICB meeting. We expect a varied program, with
annelids as the unifying theme. Time for discussion and reflection will be
built into the schedule.

Proceedings from this session will be published in the quarterly journal
<http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/journal/10.1111/(ISSN)1744-7410> any
manuscripts submitted for review by February 15, 2016 and accepted within
six months will appear in the same issue of the journal. Details regarding
manuscript submission will be distributed to authors of abstracts submitted
for the session.

*Abstracts due September 3! *


*Make sure you pick J.1 Special Session in Honor and Memory of Kristian
Fauchald under "F. Topics of Sessions." *
