Special Exhibition

How do tiny freshwater aquatic organisms get around? To a waterflea, dry land is an alien and formidable barrier, and venturing out into such an environment results in certain death. But somehow waterfleas, and many other tiny aquatic organisms, are able to colonise aquatic habitats separated by dry land.

How do they move from one pond to another? How do they cross continents, and even oceans?

This exhibition looks at the weird and wonderful ways freshwater aquatic micro-organisms disperse.
