Dear Anneliders, small group of people working at the White Sea Biological
Station of Moscow State University -WSBS - Anna Zhadan, Glafira Kolbasova,
Tatiana Neretina and Alexander Tzetlin - need your help in connection of
our ongoing project entitled “Hidden biodiversity of Arctic invertebrate
fauna”. We are going to revise Arctic worm fauna by using molecular
technique. Principal investigator from the WSBS is Dr. Tatiana Neretina.

The problem is that for investigation of species widely distributed through
Arctic and North Atlantic and North Pacific we need a material from
different locations, and even more we need the material fixed  and stored
in special way in pure alcohol (sometimes also in  formaldehyde for
morphological purposes) and perhaps in RNALater and stored in the fridge.  The
most intriguing result we have got now is the very low genetic diversity in
the populations of species living in the Arctic Basin. The data what could
be borrowed in IBOL or Genbank databases mostly limited by CO1 data.
Definitely, we need more genes for analysis.

That’s why we will be most grateful for collecting some material for us. Of
course, we are interested and ready for co-operation. We can also collect
some material in the White Sea if you are interested in it. The easiest way
for transportation of the material could be just to take them to the IPC
12.  Actually, we are interested in a number of species, but the material
even in any of them is important for us.

The most important taxa:

* Travisia, Owenia, Praxillella, Maldane, Cossura, Scoloplos, Terebellides,
Flabelligera, Priapulus *(not polychaete, but anyway)* – *any species.

Thank you in advance, please do not hesitate to contact us before you will
start fixations!
