Richard Willan
Research Scientist,
Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territories,
Darwin, Australia

Tuesday, 18 April 2006: 4.00 - 5.00 pm
Department of Biological Sciences, NUS
DBS Conference Room

Host: Tan Koh Siang

About the talk - Nudibranchs are highly visible components of marine ecosystems. However most people don't realise how many of them are not native to the countries where they presently occur and have been transported around the globe by humans. In fact the original distribution of some of them will never be known with certainty. This lecture considers why some nudibranchs and not others are amenable to transportation by shipping and why nudibranchs, unlike other molluscs, never achieve the status of "pests" in their new countries and so go unnoticed.

About the speaker - Richard Willan is Curator of Molluscs at the Northern Territories Museum in Darwin, Australia. He has wide-ranging systematic interests in nudibranchs and bivalves. "He has studied molluscs for more than 40 years and joined the MAGNT in 1992. He is an experienced diver and has carried out field work in much of Australia, also in Vanuatu, Papua New Guinea, New Zealand, North America and Europe. He is a Past President of the Malacological Society of Australasia and Life Member of the Conchology Section of Auckland Museum. He has authored or co-authored four books, over 100 scientific papers, and numerous popular articles." - MAGNT
