A pillar of UBC zoology passes away

David R. Jones

David R. Jones, UBC Professor Emeritus,  Member, Order of Canada (2003), Distinguished Scholar, Peter Wall Institute for Advanced Studies at UBC (2002),  Flavelle Medal, Royal Society of Canada (2000), Killam UBC Research Prize (1993),  Fry Medallist, Canadian Society of Zoologists, 1992,  Killam Senior Fellow (1973-74, 1989-90), and Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada (1984) passed away last Friday.

Dianne Newell, Director of the Peter Wall Institute writes: “David has been one of the great strengths of this Institute, a man full of life, talents, and enormous wit. And he was a dear friend.”

On this sad occasion, it is worth reviewing what David Jones wrote, back in 2002, about the passing of another pillar of UBC’s zoology department, Peter Hochachka.
