Congratulations to Bob Guan who, through his own research and analysis, has discovered a new species of woodlice, and won a prize for his work.
Bob has been studying remotely in China during the pandemic, during which time he has been investigating the evolutionary history of Chinese cave-dwelling woodlice. Bob entered his paper into a Biology competition for the S.T. Yau High School Science Award and won a prize for his work.
Head of Biology, Mr Matthew King, said "He produced an academic paper of postgraduate quality and actually discovered a new species in his analysis of the molecular and morphological data, which is extraordinary and could well be the first Wykehamist to discover a new species while still a pupil!"
