Tambja verconis and bryozoan

From: Jacqui Younger

Hi there,
I am at the Maritime College of Australian and am to do an assignment on the Tambja verconis. I am having trouble finding in depth information (the assignment is 2500 words!!) such as environmental impacts, scientific drawings, and the current populations if known, etc etc and many etc. If anyone could point me in the right direction, such as any good books, I would so appreciate it!!

Dear Jac,
I am afraid the biggest lesson you will learn is how little we know about most marine animals. The information you will find on the Forum - in the Fact Sheet and associated messages - is the largest accumulation of information on this species available. Have a look at the two references in the Fact Sheet as well.

Perhaps you can pad out your assignment by talking about Sir Joseph Verco, after who the species was named. He was also doubly honoured in the species Verconia verconis. There is quite a good introduction to him in the online edition of Australian Dictionary of Biography at: http://www.adb.online.anu.edu.au/biogs/A120355b.htm

These days, unfortunately, we don't see many politicians and prominent members of the community, taking an interest in, or who feel it is their duty to fight strongly for marine environmental research.

Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
