Alicia Hermosillo

Alicia has been studying nudibranchs for 6 years. Her Ph. D. thesis work consisted of four years of monthly surveys in 10 sites of Bahía de Banderas (Puerto Vallarta) where she found many undescribed species and characterized the different communities in the Bay. She finally got her degree in Dec 2006. She has worked biodiversity and taxonomy projects in the main coast and oceanic islands of the Mexican Pacific, Panama and Costa Rica. Some work in California, Alaska and British Columbia. Her specialty is tropical eastern Pacific.

Alicia has published two opisthobranch books: Eastern Pacific Nudibranchs where she co-author to Dave Behrens (identification guide of the opisthobranchs from Alaska to Central America) and Opistobranquios de Mexico, also, with Dave Behrens and Eduardo Rios-Jara as her co-authors (identification guide in Spanish of the opisthobranchs of the Mexican Pacific, oceanic islands and the Gulf of California).

She has found many new species, of which she have described 9 and she is working on a few more. Her photos have appeared on other opisthobranch books, such as Camacho-Garcia et al. 2006 Field guide to the Sea Slugs of the Tropical Eastern Pacific (which focuses on central America) and Debelius and Kuiter, 2007 Nudibranchs of the World.
