2021 in assessment for Hardbunnsfauna

One other 12 months of our “Hardbunnsfauna”-project;  Invertebrate fauna of marine rocky shallow-water habitats: species mapping and DNA barcoding (funded by the Norwegian taxonomy Initiative) is coming to an finish.

I opted for a simple solution to present among the actions we’ve had on our by choosing a submit from every month on our Instagram account to share.

Do give us a observe, should you aren’t already: we’re @hardbunnsfauna on each Instagram and Twitter!

February: our report from subject work in Saltstraumen bought revealed

March: Workshop at Espegrend subject station along with the tasks HypCop and NorChitons

April: outcomes are coming in on among the DNA barcoding we’re doing. Sponges (just like the blue one right here) are difficult to barcode, however we’re getting some attention-grabbing outcomes!

Could: we have now additionally barcoded lots of different teams, together with a considerable quantity of microgastropods (tiny snails)

June: The primary grasp pupil from the challenge efficiently offered his thesis

July: We performed marine invertebrate bingo (did you get a full set..?)

August: Fieldwork within the neighborhood; we sampled invertebrates from the fjord clean-up SUB was doing in Puddefjorden

September: We participated at an occasion at Os along with Havkollektivet, introducing the invertebrate and vertebrate locals to one another

October: Katrine was on a analysis cruise with restricted web, however did pattern many attention-grabbing critters for the challenge

November: Subject work in Haugesund, the place Slettaa Dykkerklubb organized a course on marine biology for divers
