Down-under

less than 1 minute read

I started the year in summer as I was in the southern hemisphere.

First, I participated to the 13th International Echinoderm Conference in Hobart, Tasmania. I presented there the latest results on the sea cucumber tree and a poster on the genus Euapta.

I then made my way north through the major museums of natural history of the East coast (Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane) to look for some treasures in their holothurian collections.

Finally, I joined the CReefs expedition in Lizard Island to collect sea cucumbers and other marine invertebrates. You can learn more by reading the blog of this trip written by Angus Livingston.
