What lurks among goose feathers

In March 2016, an article by Maciej Skoracki and Krzysztof Zawierucha, entitled “Chenophila nanseni sp. n. (Acari: Syringophilidae) parasitising the barnacle goose in Svalbard”, was published in Polish Polar Research (vol. 37, no. 1, 2016).

We too have made a modest contribution to the creation of this paper! The new species of parasite it describes was found on goose quill samples collected in Svalbard by Adam Nawrot from the forScience Foundation.
