James Dorey makes lead article and front cover in the latest Australian Geographic issue

James Dorey joined LEGS in February 2017 for his Honours year, but he already had a prolific career photographing insects, and bees in particular.  His work on bees formed the lead article in the latest issue of Australian Geographic and one of his amazing photographs was used for the front cover.  Read more about it at Australian Geographic, on the Flinders News page, or have a look at more of James’s photography here.
Unfortunately, James now has to focus on hard-core bee genetics, but his work on Fijian bees, along with other Flinders students, has revealed remarkable cryptic diversity, and trying to explain how that diversity has arisen raises many puzzling ecological and genetic questions.
