Congratulations to Tri Arfianti who has just published her second paper as part of her PhD. This analysis of rates of description of amphipod crustaceans predicts one third of species remain to be described.

In addition, the data indicated that pelagic amphipods are far better known and have far fewer species than benthic species. This may be because pelagic taxa generally are more cosmopolitan than benthic taxa.

The paper was downloaded over 100 times within its first month.
