Collection Trip: Smith Lab in Taiwan

Leo Smith, Andy Bentley, Matthew Davis, and Matthew Girard joined Hans Ho and Ma-Wen Chun of the National Museum of Marine Biology and Aquarium and National Dong Hwa University for a collecting trip in Taiwan from 28 November to 7 December 2014

During this first international collecting trip for the Smith Lab at KU, we collected approximately 2,250 specimens, 335 species (87% new to KU), 215 genera (50% new to KU), and 130 families (25% new to KU).

It was a tremendous success and we are grateful to our hosts for their generosity!
