Invertebrates

Polychaetes and nematode research

Our researchers are exploring the diversity and unique habitats of aquatic worms.

We are discovering and cataloging new deep-sea species and ecosystems, assessing the impact of fishing on remote seamounts using microscopic nematode worms and revealing the anatomy of polychaetes with micro CT technology.

Bryozoan research

We research the unusual colonial life of bryozoans, their involvement in fish disease, and the impact of climate change on bryozoan communities.

Mollusc research

Explore the evolutionary roots of gastropods and bivalves, which make up the majority of the marine molluscs. We use morphological and molecular techniques to systematically study marine molluscs worldwide, from the Coral Triangle in the Indo-Australian Archipelago to the Antarctic and deep oceans. 

Comparative venomics research

Used in predation and defence, venoms have evolved convergently in many groups of animals.
