Wayne Florence

 Dr Florence is the Curator of Marine Invertebrates at the Iziko South African Museum. A bryozoan taxonomist who trained at the Natural History Museum in London, he also has a number of post-graduate students and spends as much time as possible in the field collecting samples for taxonomic and molecular research. In addition to working on upcoming exhibitions, Dr Florence heads up a team working on a special, co-laborative project called SeaKeys which aims to mobilise historical biodiversity information and make it available in a digital format.
