Prof. Dr. Stefano CANNICCI

Università degli Studi di Firenze,

Florence, Tuscany,

Italy

Stefano CANNICCI

 

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.

National Wetlands Research Center,

Lafayette, Louisiana,

United States of America

Karen McKEE

 

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.
