Dr Kym Abrams Research Associate Terrestrial Zoology B. Sc. (Hons), Ph. D. firstname.lastname@example.org Research Systematics of subterranean invertebrates, particularly arachnids and crustaceans, including their phylogenetic history and evolutionary relationships. Taxonomy of arachnids, especially the documentation and description of new species. Collections: Researches the taxonomy and systematics of schizomids through the collections. Undertakes identifications of arachnids and accessions this material into the collections. Utilises collections to advise on Short Range Endemic (SRE) status of terrestrial invertebrates. Services (to other bodies): Webmaster and councillor for Society of Australian Systematic Biologists.
