Squid Life: Biodiversity of Deep Sea Cephalopods with Annie Lindgren, PhD, Research Staff and Adjunct Lecturer for the Center for Life in Extreme Environments at Portland State University

Only about ΒΌ of our oceans exist in shallow waters where ample sunlight drives photosynthesis. But below the shallows lies an entire world filled with animals living in constant darkness at near freezing temperatures under crushing pressures. From dime-sized squids that migrate the length of 6 football fields twice a day to feed, to deep-sea fish with built-in red flashlights to find food, the deep sea holds some of the greatest diversity seen on our planet. In this lecture, Dr. Annie Lindgren will present an overview of the biology and physiology of the most enigmatic and diverse creatures that call this cold dark ocean realm, home.
