Next week the 'marine team' travels to East Timor to participate in a biodiversity survey. Despite the busy week of preparations we managed to add some interesting content. Dr Stuart Welsh visited to work on freshwater catfishes and we received a great video on 'Monty' the Blue Groper. Thanks to everyone who contributed.
We didn't do a summary post last Friday, so this 'week' is a double-whammy. There is some brilliant new content, the highlight for me was the underwater footage of Orange Roughy. Fantastic stuff! Thank you as always to all contributors.
Catching butterflies hasn't changed much in a hundred years: you still need a good net, keen eyes and quick reflexes. Entomologist Dr Dave Britton describes one of the amazing catches he made during the Museum's terrestrial expedition to Timor-Leste.
