|Come along on an adventure to see deep sea hydrothermal vents, and hear about the experience of a Cal marine scientist in a research submersible! One aspect of Dr. Sigwart’s research focuses on the specialist adaptations that enable molluscs to exploit extreme environments, and adapt to environmental change. Using an integrative approach, Dr Sigwart’s research group investigates the diversity and diversification of species, in present environments and the fossil record. |
