Studying arthropods is exploration at its finest, because you're guaranteed to stumble onto something new, important, or just plain weird.

Mark Wong, who completed Honours with the Rowell Group last year, has been featured in National Geographic as a 2014 Young Explorer Grantee for his work on funnelback spiders.
