好奇播客:恒定压力下的寿命

jai ranganathan对我谈到了深海的生物多样性 和去年的论文.

超过70%的地球是海底,一个环境作为人类生活的环境作为外层空间。压力比表面上的压力百分点,没有阳光,靠近冰冷的温度,很难想象任何东西都可以在海底生存。

国家进化综合中心的海洋生物学家Craig McClain博士已经将机器人潜水器带到海底。他发现了一个惊人的海底蓬勃发展的物种:在热带雨林或珊瑚礁中发现的类似动物数量。他讨论了这么多物种在如此敌对的环境中共存有可能

Craig McClain is the Executive Director of the Lousiana University Marine Consortium. He has conducted deep-sea research for 20 years and published over 50 papers in the area. He has participated in and led dozens of oceanographic expeditions taken him to the Antarctic and the most remote regions of the Pacific and Atlantic. Craig’s research focuses on how energy drives the biology of marine invertebrates from individuals to ecosystems, specifically, seeking to uncover how organisms are adapted to different levels of carbon availability, i.e. food, and how this determines the kinds and number of species in different parts of the oceans. Additionally, Craig is obsessed with the size of things. Sometimes this translated into actually scientific research. Craig’s research has been featured on National Public Radio, Discovery Channel, Fox News, National Geographic and ABC News. In addition to his scientific research, Craig also advocates the need for scientists to connect with the public and is the founder and chief editor of the acclaimed Deep-Sea News (http://jiaxiangsuji.com/), a popular ocean-themed blog that has won numerous awards. His writing has been featured in Cosmos, Science Illustrated, American Scientist, Wired, Mental Floss, and the Open Lab: The Best Science Writing on the Web.
