Shaped to Kill: The Evolution of Secret Weapons
What we know about open-ocean predators can reveal new patterns and mechanisms in the evolution of the ocean’s food web. A fascinating group of unique carnivorous marine animals called siphonophores, close relatives of the common jellyfish, are specialized individuals that live together as a colonial “superorganism.” Researcher Alejandro Damian-Serrano will share how their unique way of hunting is their “secret weapon”: they can change their complex sets of stinging cells to capture specific prey, an adaptation that challenges our assumption that specialization is an evolutionary dead end.

This talk will include live English captioning.
