5 Tímarit Hins íslenska náttúrufræðifélags that it was feeding time. I could then stand nearby Páll and catch the surprised cubs by hand. We have also spent much time together in the labora- tory discussing methods and also in front of the computer discussing data. Much time together has also been spent in tents, while it is raining outside, enjoying discussi ons about all other matters, mat- ters far more important than science, viz. matters about values in life such as friendship and matters about death. We started as co-workers and ended up as greatest friends. There was always a joy to write scientific papers with Páll Hersteins son, his clear eye together with his sharp pen turned into outstanding texts and whenever you sent him a draft of a manuscript he returned it commented and edited within some hours or maximum two days. If it took longer he always responded directly explaining that he would be late. When the manuscript arrived he had reworked it, removed mis understandings, corrected mis tak es and turned into a flowing text in an easy way. But there were also issues that we discussed over and over again. Why are the Arctic foxes more social in Sweden than in Iceland? Did the Arctic fox get to Iceland from Greenland, or did they migrate from Ireland after the land ice melted about 10 000 years ago? These are questions that he and I won’t be able to discuss further. Páll and his wife Ásta Pálsdóttir had always an open door to friends and guests. Many of our internati onal colleagues have passed their home in Reykjavík and their summer house in Borgarnes. My last memory of Páll was when we crawled on the ground in Reykholt to find out where the bees had been collected the pollen they brought back to the hive at the summer house. At Iceland University and at Stockholm Uni- versity he fostered a new generation of modern ecolog ists. With enthusiasm and examples from both his own studies and others he has inspired many students. He helped me to supervise my students in Stockholm in a warm and productive way. He also worked close to Icelandic fox hunt ers for several years and collect ed a most valuable and interesting data set that has few equivalents in the world. This was organized when Páll Hersteinsson was head of the Wildlife Management Unit at the Ministry of Agriculture. Parallel to his scientific career he continued his father’s editorial task in his editing company, Rit- verk, and edited books in Icelandic. One of the most successful books he edited was Þingvallavatn together with Pétur M. Jónasson. But he also kept writing his own books, some of them about the “melrakka” Agga Gagg, and some of them collec- tions of short stories, such as Línur: Smásögur. In the short stories his sharp eye was again present but now also with together with humor. Over all Páll Hersteinsson was a story teller, following the old Nordic saga tradition, he told scientific stories, funny stories or long stories in a way so you didn’t know how they were related to reality. I will try to keep the legacy of this and continue to tell about Páll in stories, both in scientific papers and in the saga tradition.
