Happy to see an Aplysia forum

Hi all,
I am happy to see your forum, which is interesting and educating. I studied Aplysia oculifera in the Red Sea and I would love to share my knowledge with you.

Attached are some photos from my thesis on larval development and a list of my publications on A. oculifera.

Plaut, I., 2000 (May 26) Happy to see an Aplysia forum. [Message in] Sea Slug Forum. Australian Museum, Sydney. Available from http://www.seaslugforum.net/find/2444

Dear Itai,
Thanks for making contact and for the photos from your thesis which I have put on a separate page with a summary of your interesting work on larval development and metamorphosis.

Any further information on your studies would be of great interest. By coincidence you will see that the Forum has recently received a message from Alaa youssry Moustafa who is also studying aspects of Sea Hare biology in the Red Sea.

Best wishes,
Bill Rudman.
