Ed at Isle of Wight Zoo
Me at the zoo last year.
Just to say that I will be at the Isle of Wight Zoo on Wednesday, 27th May 2009 for their Science Week. Just like last year I will be bringing a range of invertebrates (certainly some of my phasmids and cockroaches - but hopefully quite a few more). I will also be just back from Panama and Costa Rica, so can entertain (or bore) you with stories of invertebrates from my travels.
Lamponius portoricensis and Peruphasma schultei - two of the species that I bought along to last year's event.

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.
