The 10th meeting of the Mid-Atlantic Malacologists was yesterday at the Delaware Museum of Natural History (DMNH) in Wilmington, Delaware. With about 40 attendees, 13 talks and 2 posters, this was probably the largest MAM meeting so far. And as usual, it was a lot of fun.
Here are the speakers, in the order they spoke, and the not-more-than-two sentence summaries of their talks.
Valves of Lampsilis ovata that were forced open by a predator. Did a "vegetarian" beaver do it? (From the collection of Gerald Lang; published here with his permission.)
I will take this opportunity to thank again to Liz Shea, the curator of mollusks at the DMNH and Leslie Skibinski, the collection manager, for organizing this wonderful meeting and also for providing access to the collections during the lunch break and after the meeting. I am already looking forward to next year's meeting.
