Episode Info

Episode Info: Jann Vendetti is the Twila Bratcher Chair in Malacological Research at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County. Malacology is the study of mollusks (snails, clams, octopus), and Jann's focus is snails. She was a postdoctoral researcher at California State University, Los Angeles and received her Ph.D. from UC Berkeley's Department of Integrative Biology and Museum of Paleontology. She is interested in urban biodiversity of snail and slug species, both introduced and native. In this episode we cover: What are the different types of terrestrial and marine mollusks? How is climate change impacting various mollusk populations? How do mollusks compare to and differ from more familiar taxa such as mammals? Jann's favorite mollusk - the purple sea snail!
