Octopus Biology and Behavior

with Dr. Chelsea Bennice
Florida Atlantic University

Wed | Mar 20th | 7 pm

Dr. Chelsea Bennice is a marine biologist and science communicator. Her research interests include animal behavior and ecology, with an expertise in octopus biology. She is a research fellow at Florida Atlantic University's Marine Lab and serves as a lead scientific diver and board member for the Scientific Diving and Boating Safety Committee. She is an advocate for bridging scientists and the community.

Dr. Bennice studies octopuses to advance basic and applied sciences. Octopuses are an important group in many marine food webs and serve as bioinspiration for soft robotics. She uses innovative science tools such as a 24-hour camera, the octopus monitoring gadget (OMG), and a floating lab to aid in answering research questions. Join Dr. Bennice as she takes you on a virtual research dive to study her "octo-topics", including behavior, the sin microbiome, and species identifications.
