Prof Daphne Fautin was Professor, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and Curator, Natural History Museum and Biodiversity Research Center at the University of Kansas. She was a blessing on this earth, as a scientist, teacher, mentor, humanist and friend.

She made wonderful contributions to marine science in Singapore and touched many of us with her humility, good humour, brilliance and dedication.
R.I.P. Daphne, thanks for spending all that joyous time with us.
Daphne Gail Fautin, 25 Mar 1946 – 12 Mar 2021.
