Nature in Singapore: first articles of 2009

The first articles of 2009 are out! In my favourite Nature in Singapore website on the Raffles Museum of Biodiversity Research site.
Although marine creatures have not been featured (yet), there are interesting articles about a predatory slug (terrestrial) and the Rainbow mud snake (which is a freshwater snake, alas). As well as a hawkmoth and the Saint Andrew’s Cross toadlet. With lots of photos!

And a fascinating article "Citizen science and the gathering of ornithological data in Singapore" by Y. C. Wee and R. Subaraj. More details about this article on the Bird Ecology Studies Group blog.
