Life at Deep-sea Hydrothermal Vents (Zoom)
Tuesday February 6 @ 7:45 pm - 9:30 pm
Speaker: Prof Jon Copley (Univ of Southampton)
This talk explores the patterns of life at hydrothermal vents on the ocean floor, where chemosynthesis sustains colonies of deep-sea animals that often form partnerships with microbes. Because of their island-like nature, hydrothermal vents provide an ideal system to investigate processes of dispersal and evolution in the deep ocean that covers most of our world.
