The Extreme Life of the Sea

Stephen Palumbi

The ocean teems with life that thrives under difficult situations in unusual environments. In this lecture, Stephen Palumbi will explore the icy Arctic and boiling hydrothermal vents and expose the eternal darkness of the deepest undersea trenches to show how marine life thrives against the odds. He will bring to life the sea’s most extreme species and reveal how they succeed across the wide expanse of the world’s global ocean. He will also discuss how climate change and overfishing could pose the greatest threat yet to marine life.

Stephen Palumbi is director of the Hopkins Marine Station and a professor of marine science at Stanford University.
