The lives of larvae

MIT/WHOI Joint Program student Christine Mingione of the Biology Department, collects larvae samples in spat collector bags. Many familiar marine invertebrates such as shellfish have lesser known larval stages that are important for the populations’ survival and dispersal. These larval stages can sometimes look very different from the adults because they have different feeding and swimming behaviors. Learn about the traditional and state-of-the-art methods used to study shellfish larvae in the field, as well as research on larvae that has implications for future populations of shellfish on Cape Cod at today's Science Made Public talk at 2:30 p.m. in the Ocean Science Exhibit Center Auditorium.
