About the Author

Maria Byrne is the Professor of Marine and Developmental Biology at the University of Sydney. Her research interests are on the biology, ecology, conservation, and evolution in marine invertebrates with a focus on echinoderms from across the globe and, more recently, on the impacts of climate change.

Timothy O'Hara has been researching echinoderms since high school. Since becoming a curator at Museums Victoria in 2001, his research has focused on using the vast amounts of data and specimens stored in museum collections to address issues of biodiversity conservation and management. He has conducted biodiversity and ecological surveys, mapped the distribution of seafloor animals across oceans, used extracted DNA to study evolution, and described many beautiful new species.
