Horseshoe crabs have been inhabiting Delaware Bay for millions of years, but face new threats from pollution, land use and climate change. However, invisible to the naked eye, an army of microbes has formed quiet partnerships with the crabs. In this talk, marine biologist Jen Biddle will explore the world of horseshoe crabs and their microbes, and the clues these organisms hold for new medicines and the crabs’ changing place in the environment. (Photo: University of Delaware)
