We have just finished a Mexican CONACYT funded project on polychaete
taxonomy. During this 40 months, we have had the opportunity to hear some
of the leading colleagues lecturing on taxonomy and evolution of polychaetes.
They gave themselves with both enthusiasm and passion to improve our
research activities; they were:
Harry A. ten Hove
J. Angel de Leon-González
Jose M. (Lobo) Orensanz
Leslie H. Harris
Further, we could make 25 research visits in the museums of Ámsterdam,
Los Angeles, Madrid, Paris, and Washington, where we enjoyed the kind
support by F. Pleijel, H.A. ten Hove, K. Fitzhugh, K. Fauchald and L. Harris.
Without their warm assistance, we could not have reached our objectives
because funding was not so generous as their tremendously warm care.
Most natural history museums or research collections were very helpful by
sending type and non-type materials.
Six younger colleagues reached a degree; Luis E. Escalante became a
biologist, Jenny Ruiz, L. Carrera, and M. Londono got a M.Sc., and Patricia
Salazar and Rolando Bastida received a Ph.D. You will be hearing about
them very soon and you will notice that we were really benefited by the
critical comments and support by Chris Glasby, G. San Martin, H. ten Hove,
J.A. de Leon-Gonzalez, Lobo Orensanz, K. Fitzhugh, K. Fauchald, L. Harris,
and Mikel Linero.
We could publish some 9 peer-refereed papers. In summary, these may be
modest results; they are indeed, but have been very important for us having
little funding (US 73,000). Further, the generous support by sending PDFs or
mailing reprints by most of our colleagues, as well as the e-mail discussions
with others, have helped keeping our library alive and improved our ideas a
Thank you very much. Hope you can share your knowledge with others. We
need more of this to improve our research. Best wishes,
