The Extreme Life of the Sea

Dr. Stephen Palumbi

Tickets are no longer available for this event.

The ocean teems with life that thrives under difficult situations in unusual environments. In this illustrated lecture, Dr. Stephen Palumbi takes the audience to the absolute limits of the aquatic world—the fastest and deepest, the hottest and oldest creatures of the oceans. It dives into the icy Arctic and boiling hydrothermal vents, and exposes the eternal darkness of the deepest undersea trenches to show how marine life thrives against the odds. It brings to life the sea’s most extreme species, and reveals how they succeed across the wide expanse of the world’s global ocean. Join us as we hear the unforgettable stories of some of the most marvelous life forms on Earth and the challenges they overcome to survive.
