Science on Tap - February 3

African lungfish is a vertebrate species that are adapted to survive in water and land. Every dry season, lungfish leave their aquatic life, form, and cocoon and stay dormant until water and food return. Join Dr. Irene Salinas Remiro, Professor in Biology and Associate Chair of Biology at UNM as she shares how the immune system of African lungfish has evolved and adapted for survival in water and land.
