Here is another student contribution to the CreatureCast series, by Nathaniel Chu. Nathaniel is a sophomore at Brown University, and was in Casey Dunn’s Invertebrate Zoology course last fall. In this audio piece, Nathaniel talks (and sings) about sea stars, from their run-in with the oyster industry in the early 1900’s, to their profound influence on that stretch of land between high tide and low tide, known as the intertidal zone.

Also featured are the voices of Dr. Chris Harley from the University of British Columbia, and Dr. Mark Bertness of Brown University.
