The Australian Taxonomy
I'm a marine biologist fascinated by plankton. My area of expertise is primary marine zooplankton with a particular focus on marine copepods however, I recognise mostly every taxon linked to plankton. I also deal with phytoplankton from marine ecosystems and up to certain level with freshwater planktonic communities.
I'm also have a particular interest on gelatinous plankton and larvae of crustaceans.
