Stuart Peter Donachie Ph.D., CBiol., MIBiol.
EDUCATION AND QUALIFICATIONS
HND Applied Biology University of Central Lancashire
1982 - 1984
Major: Ecology and Behaviour
Graduate of the Institute of Biology Manchester Metropolitan University
1984 - 1986
Major: Microbial Ecology
PhD Institute of Ecology/Department of
Polish Academy of Sciences,
1988 - 1995
Thesis title: Ecophysiological description of Bacteria from Admiralty Bay
(Antarctica), and the Digestive Tracts of Selected Euphausiidae.
My doctoral work also considered bacteria in the digestive tract of the
Antarctic teleost Notothenia neglecta, euphausiid faeces, and sea-ice,
and marine yeasts. I established a collection of over 400 bacterial and
yeast strains which is now housed in various Polish institutes.
