Dear all

After the lovely time arranging the Polychaete Conference in Reykjavik I 
moved to Sweden and I am now working at the Swedish Museum of Natural 
History. You can see my new address and e-mail below. My other E-mail 
address elins at ni.is will also be available as long as I am editing the 
Proceedings of the Conference.  

I want to thank all of you who wrote to me after the conference for all your 
kind words and I wish Guillermo and his colleagues a good luck in their 
preparation of the next conference.  

At the Swedish museum we now have a number of reprints from the 
Swedish Antarctic Expedition 1901-1903 that we are willing to give away. 
This expedition was lead by Otto Nordenskiöld and went to Falkland Island, 
Graham Land and the area south of Tierra del Fuego. The goal of the 
expedition was among other things to collect marine invertebrates. It became 
a successful expedition resulting in a number of papers about the zoology, 
botany and geography of the Antarctic.  

The papers dealing with Polychaetes are Polychaètes Pélagiques by C. Støp-
Bowitz and Non-pelagic Polychaeta by Olga Hartman.  

The pelagic paper is written 1951 and includes 21 species belonging to 7 
families The non-pelagic part is published 1953 and includes 166 species, of 
them 16 are described for first time. If you are interested in these papers, 
please contact me via e-mail and I will send them to you.   

Also if you are interested in papers dealing with other groups of invertebrates 
you can contact me and I will send you a complete list of papers from the 

Best regards
