My name is Toril Loennechen Moen and I'm working at the Museum of Natural
History and Archaeology in Trondheim, Norway. I'm planning a PhD on the
dispersal of Ficopomatus enigmaticus via ballast water and fouling, both
globally (finding its area of origin!) and more locally (inside Europe). I
intend to use molecular genetics to compare populations from different
localities around the world.
I'm interested in getting in touch with anyone out there already working
on the genetics of F. enigmaticus (or closely related species/genera).
Also, If there is anyone working on tracking the "dispersal route" of
other polychaetes, I'll be very happy to hear about it and/or to receive
literature-references to published work on the subject.
Thank you very much!
