Hi, I’m Bram Breure, a Dutch malacologist who is interested in Neotropical land snails since the early 1970s. Having specialized in one of the big groups from that region, the superfamily Orthalicoidea, I have also been doing research on the Australian and Polynesian members; the Orthalicoidea have radiated from the ancient continent Gondwana and also occur in southernmost Africa. Other interests are e.g., biohistory and phylogeography, on which I occasionally will also devote a blogpost. But from time to time I will also write on other tidbits that caught my interest.
Currently I’m a Research Associate of Naturalis Biodiversity Center in Leiden, the Netherlands, and also for the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences in Brussels, Belgium.
My ORCID is 0000-0001-9357-0501.
