In Memory of Kir Nazimovich Nesis (1934–2003) Russian Journal of Marine Biology, Vol. 29, No. 4, 2003, pp. 264–265. Original Russian Text Copyright © 2003 by Biologiya Morya, Kafanov, Parin, Stepan’yants. LOSSES TO SCIENCE After a short period in the Presidium of the Acad- emy of Sciences of the USSR (1966–1967), Kir Nazi- movich was invited to the Shirshov Institute of Ocean- ology AN SSSR, and there, in the Laboratory of Ocean Ichthyofauna, he worked in positions of senior, leading, and, finally, chief scientist. The major investigations of Nesis were related to pelagic and bottom cephalopod mollusks of the World Ocean, first of all—oceanic mol- lusks. His Doctor of Science Thesis entitled Okean- icheskie golovonogie mollyuski: rasprostranenie, ekologiya, evolyutsiya (Oceanic Cephalopod Mollusks: Distribution, Ecology, Evolution) was defended at the Shirshov Institute in 1986. Kir Nazimovich Nesis was never a museum worker. He personally collected his collections of cephalopods in more than 30 marine expeditions, in almost all regions of the World Ocean, from the Arctic to the Ant- arctic. Nesis is the author of 6 monographs and more than 300 scientific and popular papers on the taxonomy, distribution, ecology, and evolution of cephalopod mol- lusks and general problems of marine zoogeography, ecology, and evolutionary theory.
