Finding Maude Delap

Maude Jane Delap (1866 - 1953) was a pioneer self-taught marine biologist who lived on Valentia Island for most of her life. The research she carried out on plankton and jellyfish was ground-breaking at the time and helped build much of our knowledge around jellyfish life cycles.
