Hello, and welcome to the Wallace Website.

The aim of this site is to make available unpublished figures of novel nematode fauna encountered during ecological research at The Natural History Museum, London. The associated ecological data are published or in preparation for publication, and whilst the majority of species are β€˜new’ to science the typically high diversity of these nematode assemblages reduces the likelihood of them being formally described. We hope this move will facilitate the greater use of this previously hidden information and encourage similar activity by other research groups.The NHM London collection comprises material from both research and consultancy projects in numerous localities worldwide, including from deep sea sites in the Pacific, Atlantic and Indian Oceans, hydrothermal vents, whale falls and cold seeps, and intertidal, subtidal and estuarine sites, all of which are rare or unique collections. It is being accessioned into the NHM London Nematode Ecological Collection, databased for remote access on KE Emu and made available online and ultimately for loan.

Tropical America – the Neotropics – is the most species-rich region on Earth. Understanding the mechanisms underlying the historical assembly and evolution of this extreme biodiversity constitutes a major challenge in biology, and will require hitherto unrealized inter-disciplinary scientific collaboration.
The primary goals of this network are to: 1) Promote scientific interaction; 2) Stimulate the exchange of material, students and researchers; 3) Increase inter-disciplinarity between different fields; 4) Discuss and plan joint projects and grant applications; 5) Stimulate collaborative field work and reciprocal help with field collection of research material; 6) Inform on upcoming events, recent papers and other relevant material.
