Abstract:
The Department of Invertebrates of the RBINS maintains large collections of invertebrates (except insects and arachnomorphs) and conducts systematic, phylogenetic, population genetic and ecological research in relation to these collections. The main taxa of interest are Mollusca (Gastropoda, Bivalvia), Nematoda, Crustacea (Ostracoda, Copepoda, Amphipoda), Echinodermata (particularly Holothuria) and Porifera. Next to this taxon-oriented studies, the Department also conducts research on biological communities, such as (1) the fauna of shipwrecks along the Belgian coast, (2) the fauna of the Belgian coastal waters in the beginning of the 20th century (based on an analysis of the historical Gilson collection), and (3) the interactions between parasitic gastropods and their coral hosts. A particular research programme was also launched on the use of the calcareous skeleton of sclerospongiae as an archive of global climate change. Population genetic research in the Department focuses on periwinkles. In order to execute all these research programmmes, several techniques are applied : light- and Scanning electron microscopy, multivariate morphometric analyses, protein electrophoresis, PCR-techniques (e.g. RAPD, SSCP, ...), DNA sequencing, microsatellite analyses, scuba-diving, video-recording, etc. The Department disposes of an extensive library and several literature databases.
