Abstract

Oleg Grigor’evich Kusakin (1930–2001) was one of the greatest specialists in marine biogeography. His contribution was especially significant in the geographical zonation of cold and temperate waters of the Northern and Southern Hemispheres, into the unification of biogeographical terminology and nomenclature of the units of biogeographical zonation, and into the solution of the problem about the age and modes of the origin of the deep-sea fauna in the World Ocean.
