Revisiting Honours

What seems like a long time ago now, I was doing my Honours project focussing on the ‘hidden’ biodiversity that lives on tree ferns. I was reminded of this recently as I am only now starting to generate a few citations from my paper  (hooray!) They are such an important part of Tasmanian wet forest, it’s strange that they are basically an unstudied niche in Tasmania and across the world. I found an unusual assemblage, including many Anthribids (primitive weevils – see below). This community significantly differed from a typical ground and canopy assemblage and included a few species that haven’t been seen before (and heaps of un-described morpho-species of course).
