VMNH Myriapodologist Dr

VMNH Myriapodologist Dr. Jackson Means, along with Dr. Derek Hennen and VMNH Research Associate Dr. Paul Marek, recently published a revision of the Nannaria minor species group in a scientific paper published in ZooKeys, a peer-reviewed open-access journal. The paper, which used many of the specimens from the museum's millipede collection, was a continuation of a project that was started by the late Dr. Richard Hoffman in the 1960's.
