When I was finishing my master’s thesis, I created a video to summarize my findings and posted it online. I wanted to share the wonderful things I saw under the microscope—cells dividing, tissues folding, embryos spinning, larvae metamorphosing, juveniles crawling between sand grains. But I also wanted to convey the thrill I felt, seeing these […]
The Pluteus Trip is a music compilation that I created inspired by the life of these nifty echinoderm larvae named pluteus. It was released more than ten years ago on my (now defunct) music blog, ccNeLaS. The album is freely available at: https://archive.org/details/ThePluteusTrip Download it, read the description below, and enjoy the trip! Plutei are […]

At some point in our lives, we have all been through that (=embryonic cleavage).
The sea biscuit metamorphosis image that I submitted for the Node’s intersection image competition was selected for the November calendar! You can download it here.
Metamorphosis is a dramatic life-changing event for many invertebrates. It’s the intersection between two distinct lives – larval and adult. It is how a caterpillar becomes a butterfly. The process is fascinating, specially when you have the chance to see it happening with your own eyes. You too can see it in the video A […]
