Anders Lundquist

Professor emeritus


I was born in 1946 in Malmö, and from my early years I took an interest in animals and plants. I began medical studies in the 1960s, but realized that my true vocation was zoology. This resulted in a Master's degree in Biology, followed by a PhD in Animal Physiology.

A couple of years before my dissertation, I started giving lectures and tutoring biology students. This led to a deep involvement in teaching. I have been teaching for more than 30 years, mainly human physiology and animal physiology. I have received the Student Prize for Excellent Teaching and I am a faculty ETP.

For almost 15 years, I have been a part time web developer, designing several web sites at Lund University. I have been particularly engaged in my Swedish popular science site "Info om djur". Here, I publish my answers to questions from the public, especially from schools. I also write popular science articles for the site. The site currently receives about 5000 weekly visits.

I also contribute to the Swedish National Encyclopedia with articles in animal and human physiology as well as zoology.

I am now partly retired, but will continue working for some time to come. An important goal is to expand and update my popular science site. I also hope to find more time to read, especially books and articles within evolutionary science, history and linguistics.
