Throughout history sea anemones have been celebrated for their peaceful beauty, becoming known as the flowers and jewels of the sea. But beneath this surface beauty, sea anemones live a dynamic and far from peaceful existence.
In this free talk Dr Sarah Lane, a Post-doctoral Research Fellow from the School of Biological and Marine Sciences at the University of Plymouth, will take us on a journey into the world of anemone fighting. She will reveal that these seemingly simple creatures possess sophisticated weapons which they use to combat rivals over precious space on the shore, giving you a front row view of the incredible lengths anemones will go to in order to protect what’s theirs.
