    Numbers of slugs and snails have increased in broadacre cropping in Western Australia with the use of minimum tillage and stubble-retention practices. These systems increase the organic content of paddocks and the soil moisture content leading to higher survival levels of slugs and snails.

    Sea slugs have been making a comeback in recent years, with international research producing papers on their taxonomy, biochemistry, biology, and biogeography.   A small team of scientists at The University of Western Australia, the Western Australian Museum, and the California Academy of Sciences has identified 18 new species of sea slugs, including some only found in WA.

      There's a new, mysteriously charismatic sea slug off the coast of Australia. It needs your help. It needs a name. The creature's a type of sea animal called a nudibranch, and has been identified as a member of the genus Moridilla. But its species name — think the rex in Tyrannosaurus rex, or sapiens in our very own Homo sapiens — has yet to be assigned. The study, involving researchers from UQ’s School of Biological Sciences, Queensland Brain Institute and School of Chemistry and Molecular Biosciences, the Western Australian Museum, the University of Western Australia, the University of Bristol and Deakin University, is published in the Royal Society Proceedings B (doi /rspb).
