UM coral scientist Peter Glynn wins award for scholarly activity
Date:3/13/2008

VIRGINIA KEY, FLA. Dr. Peter Glynn, a professor at the University of Miamis Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science has been selected to receive the 2007-2008 Provosts Award for Scholarly Activity. The award recognizes extraordinary research and scholarly pursuits, and provides the recipient with a cash award toward continued research support.

This marks the second time Glynn, who received the award when it was first introduced in 1996, will receive this honor. The award will be presented to Glynn at a luncheon on April 14 in the UM Presidents Board Room.

Peter is a Pied Piper for our undergraduate marine science program. We are very appreciative of his dedication and his continuing contributions to our undergraduate students, stated Dr. Otis Brown, Dean of the Rosenstiel School.

Since the early 1980s Glynn's research has focused on coral reef disturbance ecology in the equatorial eastern Pacific (Panama, Galapagos Islands, and Easter Island). He documented the causative relationship between El Nio-Southern Oscillation sea warming events and the coral bleaching and death that result. This work laid the foundation for current studies that link coral reef degradation globally with climate change. His present research concentrates on bioerosion (the biological erosion of dead reef formations); coral reproduction and recruitment; coral reef recovery; and the effects of these processes on reef biodiversity.

Glynn received his B.A. from the University of South Dakota, graduating cum laude and winning the universitys Churchill Award in Zoology. He went on to complete his M.A. and Ph.D. from Stanford University.

Currently active in the Association of Marine Laboratories of the Caribbean, the Charles Darwin Foundation for the Galapagos Islands, the International Association of Biological Oceanographers, the International Society for Reef Studies, the Pacific Science Association, Scientific Committe
