Diana visit to the Natural History Museum of London with support from the SYNTHESYS program

Diana was awarded a grant from the SYNTHESYS program (Synthesis of systematic resources), through which I had the opportunity to meet Dr. David G. Reid, one of the most knowledgeable researchers on many aspects of the biology of littorinids, at the Natural History Museum of London. During this period, I had access to Dr. David Reid’s unique (and the world’s largest) collection of flat periwinkles, including several specimens from key geographic locations, crucial to complete our understanding of the evolutionary history of these two sister species, and to clarify an important standing debate about putative hybridization between them. It was great fun!
