Expedition Chu Yang Sin

“We are in a race against time to document and describe insect species before they disappear.” Our colleague Jérôme Constant takes you on an expedition to Chu Yang Sin National Park in Vietnam where he found lots and lots of new species! If we want to protect biodiversity, we need to know what species we’re talking about. Oh, did you know you can tell two resembling insects apart by looking at their genital organs?

Many thanks to partner-in-crime Joachim Bresseel and all local guides, drivers, cooks and students who helped out during this expedition.
