Science Pub: Parasitic Worms in a Dark Wet Forest
Kelp forests are home to hundreds of animal species, and nearly all of these host parasites. All of these species are intertwined in a complex web, which can only be fully appreciated once you recognize parasites. Meet Dr. Dana Morton from the Ecological Parasitology Lab at University of California Santa Barbara as she shares what she has learned about kelp forests by studying the parasites.
