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.
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.
