Arthropod acoustic communication is a primary focus at the Patek Lab. Here you can find our acoustically oriented research projects along with sounds and video of spiny lobsters (Palinuridae) and mantis shrimp (Stomatopoda).
New Section Added to our Website: Science Inspired Artwork
We love it when our work inspires curiosity, appreciation for the ocean environment, and creativity. Therefore, it makes our day to see artwork inspired by our research! In fact, we like it so much that we added a section to our website featuring drawings by fans of marine research. If you find mantis shrimp science fascinating and want to contribute some artwork to the website, email it to us (or feel free to send a hard copy), along with your name, what inspired it, and permission to post it on our website.
