The 11th meeting of the Mid-Atlantic Malacologists took place yesterday at the Delaware Museum of Natural History (DMNH) in Wilmington, Delaware. Among the 35 attendees there was one malacologist from Russia and another one from India, making this the first "international" MAM meeting. Also, the 17 talks that were given may have been the highest number ever presented. Moreover, Tim Pearce has brought to my attention something he and Charlie Sturm had noticed: no slides of cladograms were shown during this meeting!
Here are the speakers in the order they spoke, and the not-more-than-two sentence summaries of their talks.
"The limpet that got away was huge."
Once again, I will take this opportunity to thank 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. I am already looking forward to next year's meeting.
