Evolution of Antarctic marine fauna
Ecology, Evolution, Benthos, Marine Biodiversity
Our research concerns the evolution of benthic marine invertebrates in the Southern Ocean. Focusing on echinoderms and molluscs, we are establishing the genetic relationship between antarctic, subantarctic and deep-sea faunas to understand the diversification of these groups. Using fast evolving markers, we are also evaluating the population genetic structure of different invertebrate species with contrasting developmental modes.
- Mentor Panels
These panels are held at major international conferences and are coordinated by
APECS members. Participation involves a 2-3 hour commitment on the day
of the panel meeting.
- Career Development Presentations
Short presentations at conferences/workshops with a question/answer period.
- Career Development Workshop Sessions
Helping in the coordination and facilitation of sessions at major conferences
- One-on-One Mentoring
Email correspondence with APECS members regarding career advice (including
alternative careers in polar/cryospheric issues), research skills, data
management and occasional research-specific discussions/questions.
- Email Exchange
