Warburg (MRW) who passed away on the 9th of February, 2014 in Haifa... The organisers of the 9th Symposium on the Biology of Terrestrial Isopods, held in Poitiers, France, decided to dedicate the meeting and this special issue to his memory... The foreword of the 1st Symposium on the Biology of Terrestrial Isopods volume (London, 7–8 July 1983) states that MRW was ’the father’ of this series of symposia as he originally suggested bringing together “people with an interest in terrestrial isopods and try to present as wide a range of papers as possible”... Zuckerman on the life cycle of Trypanosomalewisii, a blood parasite of rodents... His attempts to locate the parasites were not successful, so he moved to a different research project: producing a serum against Plasmodiumberghei, a blood sporozoan lethal to hamsters... With time-consuming, diligent work (“half a year’s work which I did working days and nights”) he successfully finished the project in 1954, receiving the grade ‘very good’... He summarized 80 years of isopod collecting efforts, 40 years of which was his own, in a review paper in 2007 (no. 45)... Collecting sites in over 600 localities were visited approximately 900 times, resulting in a total of 41 species records for Israel... The latter included detailed studies of the structure of the female reproductive system and structure of the brood-pouch... Behavioral studies were focused on responses of woodlice to temperature, light and humidity and resulted in two papers (nos: 1, 7)... Greenaway, New South Wales, Australia, conducted new research on isopod ecology... He published more than 180 papers, over 75 abstracts, 2 books and was the co-editor of the 4th Symposium on the Biology of Terrestrial Isopods volume... In the past 13 years he kept publishing; fourteen of these papers are (partial) reviews on his favorite taxa... He is survived by his wife, Hava (a biology teacher) his son Ittai, his daughters Meirav and Sharon and 11 grandchildren (photo 13).

Figure 1: The distribution of MR Warburg’s papers on isopods by topic.

Mentions: He spent his last 40 years at the Israeli Institute for Technology (TECHNION), Haifa. His papers published during this period can be grouped mainly into ecological, ecophysiological and behavioral topics (Fig. 1). These themes overlap in his publications as he used diverse methods and approaches to describe the phenomena in question.
