BACK FROM JAPAN 2017-04-21
This short letter is to inform you that our long silence on most emails was due to a visit of 12 days to Japan. We took the opportunity to visit long-time friends from this great country that we did not see for awhile. It was the time of the "sakura" in Japan, the famous "cherry-blossom" period, which was unusually late this year.

We are now the end of March, and this is a little like the start of this new year is behind us. In the northern hemisphere spring is peeping everywhere, I am told there are many crocus all over the place. In the southern hemisphere starts the autumn with expected colorations in the forests. And in the Philippines it is the official start of the summer-months April and May with, we hope, a flat sea. The temperature raises several degrees and we will once more be able to stay for hours in the water.

NEWSLETTER: HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM MNHN MALACOLOGY LAB 2017-01-24
It is already a tradition by now that around the end of January we mail around the past year achievements of Philippe Bouchet and his staff from and around the French National Museum of Natural History. In French the "Muséum National d'histoire naturelle". Their achievements are stunning and for years the group sets an example of modern natural history exploration. We wish you happy reading.
