He listened carefully to each word to avoid confusion, like when he spelled out 'malocology', "a branch of invertebrate zoology

Their closest relatives are the cockroaches, from which they diverged about 250 million years ago, said Gavin J Svenson, curator of invertebrate zoology

When possible we collected vouchers specimens and deposited them in the Invertebrate Zoology

"We've long known that we are hosts to bacteria on and within our bodies but, historically, microbiologists have focused on studying individual species one at a time," says Susan Perkins, co-curator of "The Secret World Inside You," as well as a curator in the American Museum of Natural History's Division of Invertebrate Zoology
and the Sackler Institute for Comparative Genomics.

Currently, I am studying large-scale transport of biota on marine debris along with Dale Calder (curator emeritus of Invertebrate Zoology
at the ROM, and, like me, a hydroid taxonomist).This includes studying marine life on docks, boats, and other large man-made objects that washed up on North American shores following the catastrophic Japanese tsunami in 2011.
"The discovery of this new order of Cnidaria -- a phylum that includes jellyfish, corals, sea anemones, and their relatives -- is the equivalent to finding the first member of a group like primates or rodents," said EstefanEaA[degrees]a RodrEaA[degrees]guez, an assistant curator in the Museum's Division of Invertebrate Zoology
