Biographical NoteReturn to Top

Alan J. Kohn is a professor emeritus in the Department of Biology at the University of Washington. He graduated from Princeton University in 1953 and received a Ph.D. from Yale University in 1957. Kohn's research has aimed to increase understanding of the ecological and evolutionary processes that have led to high biotic diversity in tropical marine environments. Its more specific goal has been to elucidate important evolutionary trends in diversity, morphology, distribution, and ecology of one of the largest families of marine molluscs, the Conidae, from its early Cenozoic origin to the present.
