Marine Parasites are Way Cool because: | Beaty Biodiversity Museum | Sunday, 07. January 2018

Parasites are everywhere! We often don’t see them, many people don’t like them, but they are a weird, wonderful, and beautiful part of the natural environment. Parasites can **** their host, cause them to behave in bizarre ways, or just hitch a ride, but always with the purpose of finding the next host in their life-cycle.

Marine parasites, like all marine organisms, are being exposed to a rapidly changing environment, from global warming to ocean acidification, but how will they respond? Join UBC Postdoctoral Fellow Colin MacLeod, to find out!

Included with museum admission or membership.
