My connection is good.

Some studies suggest that one of the drivers of some whale migrations (e.g. killer whales) would be due to excessive amounts of diatoms on them… so the diatoms might have a significant impact on their behavior

wow
Heather Bracken-Grissom

That is amazing

tom - why would heterotrophic diatoms on whales be nutrient limited?
Matt P Ashworth
01:01:36
Pseudohimanthidium DNA data are NOT similar to any known manatee/cetacean/turtle epizoic taxa we have sequence from. Very different lineages

Tom, great talk, a pleasure a real biologist. Congratulations thank you
Ligia Collado-Vides

or maybe the thresholds for limitations might be reanalyzed?
Evelyn Gaiser
01:02:49
Thanks Matt! Figured but maybe morphological similarities?
Jeremy Kiszka
01:03:00
Thanks so much for this fantastic talk, and if you need more cetacean skin tissues, please let me know!
Matt P Ashworth

No "common" morphology among the epizoic diatom lineages so far
Evelyn Gaiser
01:04:43
Interesting, Matt. Facula? Protoraphis? I know some of them have curvature that seems to have something to do with drag reduction. Anyway very cool work, Tom (and Matt)

Great talk, Tom!

Study by Pitman et al. 2020 suggests that warmer waters allow for the skin shedding in cetaceans. Naturally skin shedding is important - diatoms on or not.

Another genus epizoic on copepods is Protoraphis
