Jesus Lozano Fernandez has been awarded £4,668 from the Palaeontological Association Research Grant to study the process and timing by which velvet worms adapted to land.

Jesus will work in partnership with Prof Davide Pisani and Dr Luke Parry from the University of Bristol to generate an anatomical dataset of living and fossil species. All living velvet worms are fully terrestrial, whereas some ancient fossils has been found in marine deposits, they propose to merge the generated anatomical dataset with molecular information from living species to understand this extreme case of adaptation.
