Life at Lizard Island Research Station is never dull. Fabulous coral reef environment, exciting discoveries, interesting visitors, amazing natural events! This post includes giant clam spawning, just to get you started.
This week we feature an incredible piece of research on deepsea fishes that have flexible 'necks' that lack vertebrae. Bizarre! Four new movies were loaded, a bunch of images added, and a new image gallery for triggerfishes was compiled.
It was a short week. Public holiday on Monday and leave on Friday. This week we feature the visit of researchers from SAIAB and have added a blog post about a fish that suckles its young. Also added were new volunteer pages, a triggerfish movie and stonefish images.
