Expertise

I have a lifetime interest in the systematics and biogeography of molluscs, and was a curator at Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle, Paris until 1998 when I joined University of Málaga, Spain as a lecturer in Zoology. My research is focused on European and West African marine molluscs, with a particular attention to the ibero-moroccan area. My efforts of recent years have culminated in the collaborative publication of a large identification handbook for the marine molluscs of southern Spain. My involvement in databases had started with the creation of the Check List of European Marine Mollusca in 1995, also a collaborative effort which was later incorporated as the mollusc component of the European Register of Marine Species and later of WoRMS.

Taxonomic term: Mollusca [WoRMS]
