Video Title:
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.

LimpiezArt School Project
Description:
The workshop „LimpiezArt" (limpieza - cleaning & art) was conducted with the Smithsonian Research Station Bocas del Toro, Panama. We combined in this project several modules of teaching, environmental games, beach monitoring and art with kids from Isla Colón and Bastimentos, Bocas del Toro. Our goal was to fascinate the children for the marine environment they have in front of their doorstep, to raise their awareness for the human impacts, in particular for the garbage problem in Bocas del Toro, and finally to show them how they can personally improve and protect their environment.

Bocas del Toro Research Station's public program's coordinator Marlon Smith caught this clip one morning in a spur-of-a-moment timing when he walked in on a caiman having a very big breakfast on the edge of the station's pond! The caiman ( http://biogeodb.stri.si.edu/bocas_database/search/species/1497? ) had caught a large fish and was quite not ready consuming it.

Chaetopterid Larvae from the Naos Dock
Description:
Footage of larvae of the Chaetopteridae family, collected from the Naos dock, in the Bay of Panama, September 2012. The Chaetopteridae are filter feeding polychaete worms that live in hard tubes placed on substrate. The tubes are made of material the worm secretes. The pink color of the larvae observed in this video is due to the Rhodomonas algae they were fed after they were collected. Video by: Rachel Collin
