The way barnacles have evolved provides us with clear examples of how these organisms have adapted to

different ways of life. Barnacles encrust onto surfaces of rocks and animals, displaying parasitic behaviour and playing important roles as members of their rocky shore

communities.

Most of us have seen barnacles on the shore, but the secrets of their body organisation, reproduction and larval development remain shrouded in

mystery to the average holidaymaker. Join Museum zoologist Phil Rainbow to uncover the enigmatic world of barnacles.

Good idea that they entertain in this way - the darwin center live lectures, I mean.
Thought the camera work needs a bit of improvement -

like show the pictures more and not the speaker! but every respect for the idea and put-it-on attitude.

Oh and the content was kind of informative as well! Confused



Parasitic castration was an interesting stratergy by a certain breed of barnacle (rootheaded barnacles) I think he called them.
What a diverse lot.

Agree Mel, the camera staying on the lecturer can be annoying in this lecture. The ohter lecture about ''Speciation''

by David Reid is produced in a very good presentation, if want to compare - so i guess it depends who is doing the work on the day for production good/not-so-good. -

But the content is still fairly interesting.

Also, if you watch it with the latest windows media (10 at the moment), on highband it is superb clarity.
