Dear Dr. Rudman,
I am a docent for the University of Florida's Whitney Laboratory and also a Marine docent for the University of New Hampshire. My husband and I are "Snowbirds" dividing our time between New England and Florida. I have recently become interested in Sea Hares, as one of the research Dr.s at Whitney is studying them. I like to be able to discuss these animals with the public when doing a marine animal zoo. I have been looking for a detailed drawing of the innerworkings of an Aplysia, so I can explain this to my fellow docents and to the public. I am also very curious, the more I learn about the creatures in the sea....the more I want to learn. I am a painter of flora and fauna as well...If it isn't "beneath your noise level" could you please tell me where I might find such a diagram/drawing? Is this email address one that I can write to the "Sea Slug Forum" ? I thank you for any help you can give. May you have a new year full of exciting new discoveries.

The best background book for Aplysia is:
Kandel,E. R. (1979): Behavioural Biology of Aplysia. San Francisco, W.H.Freeman & Co. 463pp
It will probably be more than you need but the value of the book is that it puts the anatomy of the animal into its functional context and it also puts Sea Hares into their place in molluscan evolution. It should be available in university libraries, especially if they have Pyschology Department, as Sea Hares are now an important subject for behavioural studies.
I guess you have looked at the Sea Hare page in the Forum. It will lead you to the other relevant pages. You can either use my email address to write to the Forum or click the SEND A MESSAGE button on the Navigation Bar at the top and bottom of each page.
