Biography

Dr. Ergun Taskin is currently working as Associate Professor in Department of Biology, Celal Bayar University, Manisa, Turkey. He is researching on Taxonomy, the culture and the life cycles of the Algae and especilally brown algae (Ectocarpales, Cystoseira etc.). He has been researching on sea algaes for 20 years in Turkey, Mediterranean and Turkish republic of Northern Cyprus and report many new species for the first time from this region. In addition he is named for the first time and renamed many species such as Ulva multiramosa E.Taskın, Cylindrocarpus kuckuckii E.Taskın, M.J.Wynne & M.Ozturk, Streblonema collinsii E.Taskın, M.J.Wynne & M.Ozturk and many other species. In addition he has been working on determining the ecological status of coastal and transitional waters by researching antimicrobial antiparasitic and antioxidant activists extracts obtained from algaes. He is also author of the The check-list of the marine flora of Turkey (2008), The Mediterranean Cystoseira (with photographs) (2012), Phycology (Algae) (2012) and Turkey Sea Algae I. Phaeophycea A (2013) books. He has more than 100 scientific publications on scientific field. He has a license E. TASKIN Three Stars (CMAS ***) Scuba Diving (SCUBA). He is also member of International Phycological Society (IPS) and the British Pychological Society (BPS) which is algaes related international organizations.
