This weekend saw the return of the Blattodea Culture Group to London, with a well attended meeting at the Natural History Museum.
There were four talks/presentations:
Collecting cockroaches in Madagascar (by George Beccaloni)
A film clip of Adrian Durkin's recent appearance on BBC1
An introduction to the new BCG website (by me)
Collecting cockroaches in Borneo (by Phil Bragg)
There was also a livestock exchange, with a number of interesting species changing hands.

I work on projects related to technology and taxonomy at the Natural History Museum, and as an advisor for the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature. My interests are in entomology (stick insects, cockroaches and insect acoustics) and how technology can change the way research is done in biology and museums. Big fan of open access, open data and open hardware.
