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!) http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/j.1440-6055.2011.00855.x/references. 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).
