Monday 19th September,
Neil Chalmers Science Seminar Room (DC.LG16)
12:00 - 13:00
The Antarctic Polychaeta fauna has a relatively very good background. However, very little is known about the polychaetes that thrive in whale bones implanted in the sea floor. During this talk I will be presenting some of the results obtained after studying experimentally deployed whale bones at Deception Island, a very peculiar Antarctic volcanic island from the South Shetland Islands archipelago.
NOTE: THIS SEMINAR IS ON MONDAY, NOT THE USUAL TUESDAY SLOT!
