2009 Expedition to Barbados

November 2009 Collection Trip to Barbados

Fabrice Berrue, David Overy and Russ Kerr traveled to Barbados to initiate a collaboration with Dr. Winston Tinto (University of West Indies, Cave Hill). Collections were focused on the south coast of the island using the services of EcoDivers.

The goals of the trip were to collect invertebrates and algae and also to isolate microbes from selected invertebrate samples.
