Thursday 4th July
7.15 pm for a 7.30 pm start
UTAS Sandy Bay Campus in the Law Building Seminar Room (Room 132)

Tasmania’s 200 millipede species have strange distributions that ignore habitats, are sometimes strongly “antagonistic” and hint at major displacements in the distant past.

The talk will be general and not too technical. Bob will remind naturalists of what millipedes are and how they live, followed by an overview of their distribution patterns in Tasmania and some possible explanations for the distribution oddities. The talk will conclude with spectacular examples of “meta-patterns”: patterns of distribution patterns that make Tasmania and its millipedes very special in biogeography.
