Who was Isobel Bennett?

Isobel Ida Bennett AO was one of Australia's best-known marine biologists. She assisted William John Dakin with research for his final book, Australian Seashores, regarded by many as "the definitive guide on the intertidal zone, and a recommended source of information to divers". Following Dakin's death in 1950, she saw the book through to publication in 1952, and she continued to revise and reprint it until 1992.In later editions, she was listed as a co-author, then first author. She also wrote nine other books, and was one of the first women to go south with the Australian National Antarctic Research Expeditions.
