Please join us in wishing Dr. Donald L. Mykles a very happy 70th birthday on October 23rd!

Don is a familiar face around the Bodega Marine Lab, having completed his Ph.D. here in the 1970s when the lab was a UC Berkeley field site (check out the awesome throwback photo above of Don at the lab then, plus a photo taken during a visit to Salmon Creek last spring). Don and his wife, Vicki, still visit Bodega Marine Lab several times each year, where Don works on local crabs for his NSF grant projects.
