Examining the patterns of the evolution of mode of development
Description:
Can living things re-acquire characteristics that they once lost? Some species of slipper snails may have re-evolved a free-living larval stage after losing it three million years ago to development that occurs in an egg capsule. Through a grant from the National Science Foundation, Dr. Rachel Collin, from the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute in Panama, is studying what leads to the "evolutionary potential" to reacquire features and her work will provide new insight into the process of evolution. Video and edition by: Richard Pierce Collin Lab Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute 2011 Research in the Collin Lab focuses on the evolution of life histories and development of marine invertebrates. Our current work, supported by the US National Science Foundation, uses marine slipper limpets (Calyptraeidae) to try to understand the evolutionary loss and possible reacquisition of feeding larvae. The Collin Lab is located in Panama City, Panama, at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute's Naos Marine Laboratories, but our field work takes us to various other countries in the Americas. We hope that the videos on this YouTube channel give you an introduction to the faces in the Collin Lab, as well as a taste of the kinds of projects we are working on.

Blackbird Neophobia Study - Experiment
Description:
Resident blackbirds, such as grackles, cowbirds, and red-wings and Brewer's in California; were compared to migratory species, such as rusty and tricolored blackbirds, and Brewer's in Mississippi to see how they reacted to change in their environment. To test the birds' fear response, seed was placed on the ground in a variety of habitats. This clip is the experient (see other video for control). Blue plastic windmills have been placed to surround the food. The birds take much longer to feed although they are quite aware of the food. They are reluctant to pass by the objects to get to it and spend less time feeding.

Printmaking Workshop with Jorge Porrata 1
Description:
Through the art of storytelling, artists' books, and printmaking, participants will learn about the rich legacy and way of life of the Taíno people. In these hands-on activities, children and parents will create artwork based on Taino words commonly used in Caribbean countries like Cuba, Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic to discover the influence of the Taíno people in the Caribbean and throughout the world. Jorge Luis Porrata was born in Camagüey, Cuba and is a poet and artist. He has illustrated six books for the Cuban/Cuban American publishing house Homago, based in Miami and published poetry in literary magazines of Mexico, Cuba, and the Southwest USA. His artwork explores the interconnectedness between diverse themes, such as text and image, cultural backgrounds, spiritual beliefs. His works cross a variety of disciplines, including writing, printmaking, drawing, and performance art. He currently lives in Fairfax, Virginia where he teaches art courses at George Mason University.
