Exploring the deep sea emboldens scientists to open their minds to the impossible. This is Part 4 of “Peering into the deep,” a five-part series exploring our evolving understanding of life beneath the waves.
Research interests of Timothy Shank’s Molecular Ecology & Evolution Lab are focused on understanding ecological and evolutionary processes that structure the diversity of deep-ocean benthic communities, including larval dispersal, colonization, habitat utilization, genetic connectivity, and the evolutionary relationships of invertebrate fauna. These studies include seamount and chemosynthetic ecosystems intimately tied to planetary processes significant to the evolution of life on earth.
