New country – Brazil!
Thanks to my college-buddy Luc Rouws and his son, we have a new country on our list: Brasil!
Luc was a fellow biology student at Wageningen University back in the nineties and early 2000s when I was still in the process of becoming a population ecologist and entomologist…a looooong time ago. Luc emigrated to Brasil to pursue his career and start a family and I must admit I lost track of him for over 15 years. Then he quite suddenly popped up in Wageningen last year for a research-visit at NIOO and handed me these tabs, collected by his son in Rio (but I have to check that.) With that we now have pull tabs from 38 countries on the planet.
