This four-part series celebrating International Polychaete Day (1st July) will feature four different polychaete research carried out at the St John’s Island Marine Laboratory.

The first part explores the biodiversity of polychaetes in Singapore. To date, 90 species of polychaetes have been recorded from Singapore. Local scientists are still discovering new records for Singapore and possible new species.

In the next instalment of this series, we will talk about research on culturing polychaetes. Stay tuned next Wednesday!
