David Cowles - Picky Octopus and Smart Aemones: Marine Research at Rosario Beach Marine Laboratory

Dr. Cowles discusses several instances of unexpectedly complex behaviors that his students have recently studied at Rosario Beach Marine Laboratory. An octopus is finicky in its diet for reasons that go far beyond simply obtaining enough food. Anemones lack brains but are able to manipulate the symbionts with which they live.
