Symbiosis in the Upside-down Jellyfish
We study the role of dinoflagellate algal endosymbionts in the process of jellyfish metamorphosis. These photosymbionts are critical in the completion of host the life cycle. The student will learn algal cultivation, photophysiology and invertebrate zoology techniques.
