    MMS 115: Evolutionary History and Marine Mammal Mastication

    MMS 115: Evolutionary History and Marine Mammal Mastication

    On this week’s episode Dr Ashley Scarlett chats with guest Dr Carlos Peredo about the evolutionary history of marine mammals and the extreme adaptations they've developed for eating their prey.
     
    Short Bio:
    Dr. Carlos Peredo is an NSF Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Biology and a University of Michigan Society of Fellows Postdoctoral Scholar. His research focuses on understanding the macroevolutionary patterns associated with mammals returning to a marine environment. Carlos studies major ecological transitions in Earth history and how they drive the evolutionary origins of key innovations in mammals to facilitate life in the water. Currently Carlos is studying the loss of mastication in two lineages of marine mammals: whales and pinnipeds.
