Jeng Min Shou (Academia Sinica) and the Vent Crab

Category : visitors

Jeng Ming Shiou, a marine biologist from the Research Centre for Biodiversity, Academia Sinica (Taipei) is in Singapore in June 2004. He is discussing the ecology of the hydrothermal vent crab, Xenograpsus testudinatus with Peter Ng and Ng Ngan Kee.

They are also discussing plans for long term collaborations, expeditions, studies of specific groups of crustaceans, phylogenies of reef-associated crabs, examining specimens of Trapeziidae and Alpheidae and sourcing for tissues for DNA phylogeny work.

His work in Singapore stems from a joint paper published last year with Paul Clark (Natural History Museum, UK & Honorary Research Asssociate, RMBR) and Peter Ng on the larvae of this crab. Based on their work, "a new family may need to be established to accommodate Xenograpsus within the Grapsoidea."*
