Cross disciplinary research on sea snakes

Aktivitet: Tale eller præsentation Foredrag og mundtlige bidrag


Sea snakes have developed many new morphological adaptations to their way of life in the ocean, making them a super exciting group to work with using morphology and molecularly data Sea snakes are widespread and occur in relatively shallow waters in the Indian and Pacific oceans. They consist of two groups the oviparous sea snakes, also called sea kraits, and the viviparous sea snakes also called the true sea snakes The lecture will deal with research within both sea snake groups We have worked with systematics, CT scanning of brains, mimicry, head sizes, harvesting, species concept, new species, poison, and the use of sea snakes as bioindicators The lecture will also touch on the many expeditions that we have carried out in the Asian and the Australian region and what consequences global warming can have on the sea snakes' way of life
