MBARI YouTube Channel

The Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute recently unleashed their new YouTube Channel. Of course it features Macropinna but you can also see Humboldt squid.  A new video (below) on Davidson Seamount that discusses research I have been involved with was just uploaded today.

Craig McClain is the Assistant Director of Science for the National Evolutionary Synthesis Center, created to facilitate research to address fundamental questions in evolutionary science. He has conducted deep-sea research for 11 years and published over 40 papers in the area. He has participated in dozens of expeditions taking him to the Antarctic and the most remote regions of the Pacific and Atlantic. Craig’s research focuses mainly on marine systems and particularly the biology of body size, biodiversity, and energy flow. He focuses often on deep-sea systems as a natural test of the consequences of energy limitation on biological systems. He is the author and chief editor of Deep-Sea News, a popular deep-sea themed blog, rated the number one ocean blog on the web and winner of numerous awards. Craig’s popular writing has been featured in Cosmos, Science Illustrated, American Scientist, Wired, Mental Floss, and the Open Lab: The Best Science Writing on the Web.

  1. Orange anemone WANT! I’ve been tracking orange anemones (typically with black columns) for a couple years now. My colleagues and I described a new species of Chondrophellia, which that anemone looks a bit like. It turns out most people were misnaming of lumping these orange deep sea anemones for years. If any of you come across these guys, snip a bit of the column or pedal disc for DNA and fix the rest in 10% formalin for a day (relax in menthol crystals or MgCl2)

  2. MBARI – Ooohhhh Want!!

    Hey, anyone here work with Hi-Def all the time, or have a contact?
    I have some questions about a rig I have to put together out of existing pieces for a cruise.
