Getting up close with sea snails and jellyfish
Our changing climate will affect species of all shapes and sizes. But understanding what that means in the first days and weeks of a creature’s life has always been a real challenge. Now scientists are using robotics and time-lapse cameras to examine the embryos of fish and shrimp, snails and jellyfish, and see how climate change is affecting their size, shape, movement and heart rate. Senior Research Fellow Dr Oliver Tills will say why this level of knowledge is more important than ever and how his technology could help species survive in the future.
