I am a Life Sciences student specializing in Environmental Biology, with a general interest in nature and ecology. My project focuses on mapping the genetic structure of Periclimenes populations around Singapore. Some of these are anemone shrimps which form commensal relationships with Haddon’s carpet anemone, Stichodactyla haddoni. While numerous in certain areas, many are neither seen nor appreciated except for the five-spot anemone shrimp Periclimenes brevicarpalis. I hope that my research will help us better understand the ecology and evolution of anemone shrimps.
