Dr. Wright’s research on territorial limpets is featured in The Academic Minute.
In case you missed it last week, Dr. Wright, professor of Biology, was featured on The Academic Minute. In the quick audio clip, he describes how limpets can get very territorial. Dr. Wright and his students study the behavior of these small sea snails, and how they push and shove for the best section of the tide pool.
Throughout the podcast, Dr. Wright describes in colorful detail the risks and rewards that limpets see when gaining more land. The world of the territorial limpet is tiny, but exciting nonetheless. Make sure you listen in! The transcript can be found here.
