Mollusc Research Grants 2014 Winners Announced As usual, the 2014 Molluscan Research Grants were extremely competitive with a number of very high standard applications. The project proposals encompassed a diverse range of molluscan research, including responses to climate change. ecology, taxonomy, fisheries management and conservation. The grant selection committee decided to award $1500 to the two equal top ranked projects, as follows:

Priscila Goncalves, Macquarie University, was awarded a general Molluscan Research Grant for her very innovative project on “Understanding climate change impacts on oysters” (Molluscan Research Grant)
Jonathan Parkyn, Southern Cross University, was awarded the Molluscan Taxonomy Grant for his highly significant research into “The systematics of the speciose landsnail genus Gyrocochlea (Mollusca: Charopidae)”.
Congratulations to these dedicated early career malacologists .We look forward to hearing a project summary from the successful applicants in future issues of the MSA Newsletter.
