At this month’s meeting, Wednesday, February 8, the Broward Shell club will be having a program given by Paul Callomon.  Paul Callomon is Collections Manager in the Department of Malacology at the Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia. He is the author of two books and several papers focusing on the mollusks of Japan, where he lived for many years. His talk recalls collecting trips in various areas of the country, and especially the Amami Islands. This island group is not well known to travelers from outside Japan. Despite a long history of human settlement it still boasts some of the best surviving coral habitats in the northwestern Pacific region and a very rich molluscan fauna.
