Live from the Lab: Stories of Animal Ancestors – Part 3 – The Secret Lives of Sea Creatures

1. December 2020 @ 19:00 - 20:00

Have you ever wanted to travel back in time and understand how animal life came to be? This series might be your best chance. Join researchers as they ask the same overarching question: what did animal ancestors look like? In an attempt to answer this question, we will discuss modern methods in science, take a look at the fossil record, how cells shape the bodies of different animals and how they evolve. Bring along your burning questions on the origins and evolution of animal life and join in the discussion.

Part 3 – The Secret Lives of Sea Creatures

What kind of life did early animals lead? Did they have a similar body form from birth to adulthood, like humans, or did they undergo metamorphosis like tadpoles to frogs and caterpillars to butterflies? And which came first in evolution: the adult or the larva? Join Wednesday’s researchers who try to answer these questions by studying animals with alien larval forms.
