Abstract

Russian Journal of Marine Biology, Vol. 27, No. 1, 2001, pp. 62–63. Original Russian Text Copyright © 2001 by Biologiya Morya, the Editorial Board. Nikolaevna was an artist. He began to show interest in science during his school years, and this interest was retained throughout his life. Zhirmunskii went through the Great Patriotic War (World War II) (1941–1945), ending up as the commander of an anti-aircraft platoon. After the war, he returned to Leningrad University, where he began his research on the contractile ability of sea anemones and hydrae under the leadership of the prominent cytologist and cell physiologist D.N. Nasonov, corresponding member of the USSR Acad- emy of Sciences. Later on, Nasonov drew Zhirmunskii into working on the organization of a new institution within the USSR Academy of Sciences, the Institute of Cytology. In this period, his talent for organization became apparent. His intensive research and organiza- tional work during the Leningrad period of his life served as a jumping-off point for all Zhirmunskii’s sub- sequent multifaceted and successful activities.
