  • Geoff Boxshall
    Department of Zoology, The Natural History Museum, Cromwell Road, London, SW7 5BD, United Kingdom
    Research Interests: Evolutionary history of copepods. In particular, how they colonized marine caves, how they conquered and came to dominate the open pelagic water community of the world’s oceans, and how they moved from a free-living to a parasitic life-style (on a diversity of hosts ranging from sponges and flatworms to vertebrates such as fishes, reptiles and mammals). Other interests include near-relatives of copepods, such as the tantulocaridans, branchiurans and mystacocarids.
