[2017-10-25]  Mollusc taxonomy training workshop
Last week I had the chance to participate to the molluscs taxonomy workhop held in Mauritius and organized by the Mauritius Oceanography Institute (MOI).

[2017-01-12]  Seashells of New Zealand
NEW_ZEALAND Dear visitor, I wish you the best for this new 2017 year.
Today Conchylinet holds a decent number of common New Zealand species and can be used to perform identifications of shells from this part of the world. Most mollusks from NZ are not to be found anywhere else and are endemic of this two-islands state.
I recommend you to visit New Zealand Mollusca if you need a bigger species range, this site also includes micro molluscs and the terrestrial fauna.
[2015-12-31]  Toward 2016
Hello, 2015 comes to its end. I hope this year was good for you, for the Earth it was just another bad year which experienced the warmest year since we record temperature.
Looking at the recent past we can expect 2016 to be worse: pollution, poverty, nature resources declining... All of this because we, humans, are just too many. Unfortunately sciences, techs and civics advances are too slow to compensate overpopulation impacts. So, unless stopping spreading children, little can be done.
But it is still possible to admire what Nature has built and amongst all these wonders our molluscs and their shells!
[2015-03-21]  March 21, 2015. Tide of the Century
Today, the oceans experience an exceptionnal tide: Sun, Moon and Earth are aligned (an eclipse is visible from some places), plus the moon is closer to us than usual and it is the spring equinox time.
marée du siècle
As a consequence the tides will be very low in some places, and 6 hours later very high!
It is a rare opportunity to explore the coast as some areas usually under water will be dry ! but be careful not to get trapped by the raising tide.
