Project title: 
Biodiversity of Heterobranchia from Southern Coast of Iran (Persian Gulf)
ZFMK Project lead: 
Object of research: 


Fauna of South Iranian shore lines and the Persian Gulf in general is hardly investigated at all, and only few studies document the occurrence of marine Heterobranchia, many of them generally known as sea slugs. We investigate biodiversity of these slugs analysing molecular data, as well as anatomical data by using Histology, Micro-Computer Tomography and Scanning Electron microscopy.
