Poore, Gary C.B.


I research the taxonomy and phylogeny of marine Crustacea, especially Isopoda and Decapoda, and ecology and biogeography of communities of marine soft-bottom macrobenthos. I have published identification guides for diverse audiences.
Forty years experience in the taxonomy of marine crustaceans and environmental ecology has given me to a broad knowledge of the taxonomy of marine invertebrates that has led to publication of numerous papers and three books on crustacean systematics. I have collaborated with other institutions in Australia and elsewhere and was heavily involved with the Census of Marine Life during its decade (2001–2010) and since. I am a foundation member of The Crustacean Society. This involvement has enabled me to built links between researchers all over the globe that result in furthering research and building and maintaining WoRMS. As a member of the WoRMS SC I have pushed successfully for the inclusion of identification keys to the resources offered and would continue to advocate this.

Taxonomic terms: Axiidae Huxley, 1879 [WoRMS]; Crustacea [WoRMS]; Gebiidea [WoRMS]; Isopoda [WoRMS]
