He will be discussing the marine biology of the deep sea around Roatan, Honduras, with an emphasis on feather stars and sea lilies, or crinoids, a group of animals related to starfish and sea urchins that he has been working on for over 20 years. He has also kept them successfully in marine aquaria on campus.
