Introduction to week 2

Welcome to week 2
Hi, and welcome to week two of the Future Learn open course Life below Water. My name is Dr. Christopher Clemente, and I’m a research scientist at the University of the Sunshine Coast, Australia. In this week, we will explore the form, function and evolution of animals that live below the water. We will explore ideas like how do diving animals stay underwater for so long? How does sharks reproduce? How far can a crocodile move? Why are some animals round and other streamlined? And how did whales come to be the shape that they are? So get ready for a week of learning about the amazing world underwater.
