This morning seminar will present museum scientists’ recent discoveries and will illustrate how complex patterns in sound, colour, shape and genetics can now be used to understand natural diversity.

As well as sharing the wonder that researchers feel when they make new discoveries, the presentations will show how collaborations, new technology and citizen science are vital to current research efforts.

Seminar participants will have time for discussion over morning tea.
