Video clip of "Copepods -- an introduction to the 'Insects of the Sea'" by Prof Rony Huys

Thanks to Andy Dinesh, here's a video clip of the awesome talk by Prof Rony Huys on one of the most numerous animals on the planet.
From his talk, we learnt that copepods are indeed sexy, delightful and endlessly fascinating animals.

The talk is part of the Wallace Lectures and Prof Rony is in Singapore for the Southern Expedition of the Comprehensive Marine Biodiversity Survey of Singapore.

Thanks to Andy for patiently filming with two cameras and processing the clip so quickly!

I also did a bit of live-tweeting of Prof Rony's talk. I apologise for the mispellings due to fat fingers on tiny phone and autocorrect.


  1. The boat surveyor’s Dubairole in its investigation and reporting.
    Because my principal experience as a surveyor over the years has been
    as an underwriters’ surveyor, my comments in this paper are
    understandably slanted towards insurance claims but many of the
    principles will not be lost on surveyors appointed by other principals.
    The role of independent marine surveyors
    It is well established that a surveyor’s principal role is to establish
    the facts as they relate to nature, cause and extent (three words
    with which I am sure you are all very familiar) when instructed to
    carry out a damage or loss survey but, of the three, we are
    principally concerned in this paper with cause/causation.
    However, before becoming immersed in discussion on this
    fundamental role I am going to remind you briefly that a surveyor
    has at least two other important functions.
    A marine insurance policy will often contain a clause specifically
    alerting the assured to their responsibilities to take appropriate
    steps to mitigate a loss and to claim on third parties.
    The assured is required to do both of these as a condition of
    acceptance of any claim under the policy but in any event, under
    English law, it a common law requirement for a claimant to
    mitigate a loss, as it is under the law of many other countries.
    Mitigation of loss
    Hull and machinery Surveyors, from their wide experience of marine claims in one form
    or another, are often in a very good position to advise a claimant on
    both their need to mitigate a loss, and also in many cases on the
    best method of doing so.
    However, surveyors must bear in mind that it is not their role to
    actually involve themselves with the appropriate action unless
    otherwise instructed by their principals.
