José M. Guerra-García is Full Professor in the Department of Zoology of the University of Seville (Spain). His PhD and early research interest dealt with soft bottom communities of harbours. He was fascinated by caprellidean amphipods, and has focused his research on their taxonomy, ecology, behaviour and global biodiversity and biogeography. The main contribution of Jose Guerra lies in the description of 10 new genera and 70 new caprellid species, with one of them, Liropus minusculus, selected as one of the top 10 new species in 2014. He is also interested in the utility of these amphipods as bioindicators and as alternative resource in aquaculture.
