JoomlaWatch Stats 1.2.7 by Matej Koval


I would like to express my gratitude to all those who gave me the possibility to complete this webpage. Thanks to Evren Kol for his help in learning how to set up a working web site; Mehmet Korkmaz, for giving a great effort at the initial steps of preparing this web site. I am also very thankful to my dear friend Theresa Marangoudakis for reviewing of the texts to sound more natural.

I believe that taking picture even using a sophisticated microscope is a fairly personal effort. However, I must admit many friends' and colleagues' contributions in the lab, underwater and during land excursions where their point of view and previous works inspired me a lot. Over the last 25 years of my research life, I was happy to work with Drs. Olcay Semiz, David F. Albertini, Özgür Çınar, Yasemin Özdemir, Müge Yemişçi, Günfer Gürer, Burcu Tefon, Sinan Özkavukcu, Serçin Karahüseyinoglu, Deniz Balcı, Duru Aras and Hakan Coşkun who gave hand in preparing countless number of microscopic slides which were then archived in my lab's micrograph collection (see few samples under MICROGRAPHS). Needles to say, hundreds of dive buddies and guides made me seeing the objects, critters as well as threats during thousands of underwater expeditions.
